    Logitech webcam doesn't work in Skype, but works with Cheese

    Hi

    I'm using a basically vanilla Lubuntu 11.04

    My Logitech E 3500 webcam works fine with Cheese.

    I have just installed Skype, but my voice isn't picked up on the test call, and no video either (the webcam light remains off). I've tried logging off and into Skype.

    Any ideas? Thanks

    That's didn't work. Skype didn't launch afterwards.

    I mv-ed /usr/bin/skype back and Skype launches again, but still no webcam.

    I tried the suggestion on post #5, but it didn't work .Skype launched fine, but no webcam recognised.
