    Question Dell Precision 5470 webcam not working

    Hello,

    I am new to Ubuntu, and I installed it onto my Dell laptop. I've installed the new LTS release, and I am trying to use Zoom, but my web cam is not working.

    Does anyone have advice on how I can get it working?

    Thank you,
    - Jano

    What do you mean by not working? Are you using the app or the browser to access Zoom? You can try installing "Cheese" from the app center and see if that webcam program recognizes your hardware.

    Might want to check the cable connection, output of "lspci" and "sudo dmesg" as well.
