Acer crystal eye hd webcam & sd card not detected (Mint 14)

Postby bykeams on Sun Dec 02, 2012 5:02 pm

Hi,

I've bought a new laptop Acer Aspire V5-531 with built-in webcam (Acer Crystal Eye HD). I've tried different distro : Ubuntu 12.10 (live mode), Mint 13 LTS and finally Mint 14.
-> Ubuntu 12.10 (in live mode) my webcam is ok but sd card reader isn't. After installlation, both aren't detected even when i install cheese.
-> Mint 13 & Mint 14 (full installation), the system doesn't detect my webcam even when i install cheese, same thing for sd card reader.
