Logitech Express in Skype doesn't work [SOLVED]

Postby Snitch on Sat Feb 26, 2011 8:27 am

Hello, I have a really big problem. My webcam works in Camorama and doesn't work in Skype. When I try to open Skype with the
Code: Select all
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype
Test button in Video options gives me this error in terminal:
Code: Select all
X Error, request 132, minor 18, error code 8 BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)

What should I do to solve it?

I found a solution! I had upgraded some libraries (libxcb, v4l) and made sh script:
Code: Select all
#!/bin/sh
export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so
export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1
