    Trust webcam 14382 and skype

    I am running kubuntu 12.04
    The webcam works with cheese and on test on phonon.

    It doesn't work on skype.

    The code LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/ skype doesn't work the terminal gives object '/usr/lib/libv4l/' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.

    lsusb recognize it

    Bus 002 Device 005: ID 093a:2468 Pixart Imaging, Inc. SoC PC-Camera

    Is there a way to make it work with skype as with cheese?

    Huh, I thought the point of v4l1compat was being able to preload it.

    Does the file exist to begin with?

    Also, are you running a 64-bit installation?

    I think the file has moved and been renamed, so you need to modify the command. Try the command: locate libv4l

    Perhaps it is here:
    bash -c 'LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/ skype'
