Webcam issues


Hi Everyone,

I'm fairly new to linux, but not a total n00b to the system. I'm currently running Ubuntu 10.04(yes i still need to update to 10.10) dual booted with Windows 7. My webcam works fine for skype and such in windows, but not in linux. I checked the hardware drivers and nothing needs to be installed or updated.


lsusb
yields the following:
Bus 008 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 005 Device 003: ID 08ff:1600 AuthenTec, Inc. AES1600
Bus 005 Device 002: ID 0b05:1751 ASUSTek Computer, Inc.
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 064e:a116 Suyin Corp.
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

skype is a 32 bit program
there are things you need to tell us 64 bit system 32 bit system. and after you have searched a well documented reason for this. most likely the skype forum you have a 64 bit system.
If not oh well same thing for the 32 bit just a different place to look in the system
this is a very simple problem well documented for skype and Ubuntu.
Quote:
sudo apt-get install lib32v4l-0
then for gspca cams old ones in a console type LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype for new cams typeLD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l2compat.so skype More info here
you will want to edit your menus so all you have to do is click on skype this is a skype problem. we cant fix it it is not an open source program.
