Acer Aspire One ZG5 Netbook - Built in webcam & Microphone not working. Skype
 
Hi there,

As above I have the netbook with Ubuntu installed. I have installed Skype and it does not seem to detect the intergrated webcam or microphone. I can not seem to find any options for it within Ubuntu itself.

When I go on to Skype and do a test call, it basicially doesnt detect either the webcam or the mic, and I really need to use Skype!

Can anyone please point me in the right direction?

Regards
James

I dont do web cam chat but I heard Empathy has support for web cam. So can you open up Empathy and set up your account and see if it works with that? I dont know if it is true but I heard your contacts can be using skype while you chat with them from Empathy just fine.

Another software that works with your camera is Cheese. I think is already installed in Ubuntu.

I know Empathy is already installed under the internet applications but you must set up your accounts for it to work.

Good luck to you
