I am new to Mint and I used Ubuntu 10.04 (I didn't like unity). On my new labtop (ASUS UX31A) I am now running Mint 13 Maya, kernel 3.6.0/030600rc4-generic x84_64, with gnome2 desktop.
After updating the kernel to 3.6 in order to get the function keys working the webcam is not recognised anymore (neither by Skype, Cheese, Guvciew).
The output of lsusb:
- Code: Select all
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 04f2:b330 Chicony Electronics Co., Ltd
I checked here http://www.ideasonboard.org/uvc/ the camera does not seem to be supported by uvc. But when I installed Mint13 it was recognised. So I am puzzled.
Anyone an idea what's going on, how to solve the problem or where to get a driver for the webcam? I did check the forums:
in the ubuntu it says it should work out of the box! It does when booting ubuntu 12.04 from an USB stick. I also read in an older thread (2010) that after kernel update one needs to install the system76 drivers. But as I understood they are not exsising in Mint?
Thanks in advance!
