    Integrated camera not showing up in lsusb or lspci (Thinkpad X230)

    I'm trying to get the integrated camera on my laptop (Thinkpad X230) to work, but cheese says "No device found". It also doesn't show up in the output of lsusb or lspci. The camera is set to enabled in the BIOS.

    lsusb output:

    At this point, I'm wondering if it's just a hardware problem. The laptop had Windows installed when I bought it and I stupidly didn't check the camera before I wiped it.

    Does anyone know what else I can try?

    It might be the hardware configuration issue mentioned in this thread in the lenovo forums

    Can the camera work on another Windows computer? That's an easy way to determine if it's hardware

    I'm pretty sure I have a webcam in the laptop. I didn't buy it directly from Lenovo but I'm sure I can actually see it in the laptop.

    It's built-in to the laptop so I don't know how I could check that without pulling the laptop apart.

    Re: Integrated camera not showing up in lsusb or lspci (Thinkpad X230)

    You could well be right.

    From your lspci output
    Code:
    03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Advanced-N 6205 [Taylor Peak] (rev 34)
    A check at Intel shows that chipset supports MIMO 2x2
    https://www.intel.com/content/www/us...etworking.html

    It might be interesting to see the output of
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -i usb
    and
    Code:
    lsmod | grep uvcvideo
    Looking at http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Category:X230
    it seems you should be seeing
    Code:
    720p HD Integrated camera (04f2:b2eb Chicony Electronics Co., Ltd)
    for the camera and the thinkwiki page states that it should work with the uvcvideo driver so you could try
    Code:
    sudo modprobe uvcvideo
    If that gets the camera working then you could add uvcvideo to /etc/modules to ensure it always loads

    I am sorry I can't offer the definitive fix; but I rather think I have seen several of these posts recently; ...... webcam not showing up and leaving everyone puzzled; I will attempt to provide chapter and verse later

    Unfortunately not getting any output with
    Code:
    lsmod | grep uvcvideo
    and
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -i usb
    doesn't appear to show up anything useful either. I'll post the output just in case I'm missing something:

    I can do modprobe with uvcvideo but it doesn't affect anything.

    In this post https://askubuntu.com/questions/4616...pdate-to-14-04 it seems that pressing FN + the Camera key (maybe F10 for you) will activate the camera

    It could be that the camera isn't on.

    We know that Ubuntu can't detect the camera at all if it isn't in lspci.

    If the camera is on and it still doesn't work, try this page:

    Dear linux user,

    Have you checked the bios settings? It might be disabled there.

    And this I found on the Lenovo forums:

    X230 - camera stopped working
    It can be turned on by pressing Fn+F6.
