Hey I think the reason this comand doesn't work anymore is because the location of the libv4l directory has changed in linux mint 13. Try this:

Code: Select all
env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l2convert.so skype


or this:

Code: Select all
env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l2convert.so skype


either might work depending on your build. The first one works fine for me on Maya with skype 4.0.0.8

Otherwise just try to search for libv4l directory using nautilus and put the correct address.

Hope this helps!

We have an asus laptop which had the same problem, the camera had been installed up side down. We took the panel apart and put it back the right way up - it wasn't hard and video in Skype now works right way up.
