I would try
Quote:
sudo modprobe uvcvideo
because that catches a lot of them. Then go looking for it. To check if uvcvideo is there, try
Quote:
lsmod |grep uvcvideo

Hi,

perhaps I'm missing something but I don't see anything from lspci or lsusb that looks like a web cam. Perhaps lshw might yield more. Please run the following and post the results in [code] tags so the formatting is preserved:
Code:
sudo lshw
Evo2.

The first command should say nothing, the second looks good. Still no camera? I have to agree with evo2; nothing looks like a camera. You do have a usb id
Bus 004 Device 006: ID 138a:0018 Validity Sensors, Inc.
but that's a fingerprint scanner according to the latest usb.ids.

Skype is good for finding the camera (options/video settings or some such)

Hi,

please use [code] tags when posting output. Also, just because the camera is built-in and you don't see a connection to an external usb port does not mean that it is not using usb internally, as is the case with your fingerprint scanner.

ok, again there is nothing that looks like a webcam (at least to me). What is the model number of this laptop: a web search doesn't reveal anything for "HP pavillion", be there are a huge number of different machines described as "HP Pavilion".

I had a HP 6715S for many years. It was supposed to have a fingerprint reader, sdcard thingy, and webcam but none of them were on the model I got. It was bankrupt stock, and nobody had opened the package :-/. I wouldn't take the documents too seriously. A company called Truevision makes oscilloscopes and it's most unlike HP to name their stuff after another company. If a camera had worked before, it looks like it isn't responding now.

Can you see the lens of the camera? Does it operate in another OS? We think you're looking for something that isn't fitted.
