    Trying to install iSight webcam; “module bcd_pci” not found - Google no help

    I'm a recently convert to Linux.

    Running Ubuntu 19.04 on an older Macbook 4.1 or 4.4, white model, September 2008.

    It has an iSight camera which is the only thing that didn't work out of the box.

    I'm following the instructions at:

    https://askubuntu.com/questions/9902...on-macbook-pro

    Everything seems to work fine till the "sudo modprobe -r bcd-pci".

    Then I get a "modprobe: FATAL: Module bcd_pci not found".

    Google doesn't help and I can't find an explanation on the forums as to why this is happening. I can't get back to using OSX too. This system is limited to 10.7 and things are starting to get outdated/having compatibility issues especially online.

    I'm aware my question might be tremendously simple to solve, but I'm really at a loss.

    Yeah, I should just buy a new computer and get on with it. Unfortunaly, can't spend that much right now.

    I'd be very thankfull if anyone could chime in.

    Moved to the "Apple Hardware Users" forum.

    Welcome.

    First of all, Ubuntu 19.04 is out of support. There's no point in troubleshooting.
    Please install the current Ubuntu 20.04. Then, if it doesn't work out-of-the-box, try the same instructions.
