Skype, camera upside down, MINT 14 MATE

Postby Enna on Mon Feb 25, 2013 2:37 am

Hi all,

an old problem in the new version, I had this before, but the old ways to fix it don't work anymore.

Skype Version 4.1.0.20
Linux Mint 14 MATE
ASUS K70-AD

Camera is upside down in Skype (not in Cheese), how can I turn it?

Thanks guys!
Cheers,
Enna

I found this link which helped me:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1984328

Here's what I did:
1. in a terminal type:

Code: Select all
sudo gedit /usr/local/bin/skype


Paste this into the text file:

Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash
export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so
/usr/bin/skype %U


3. Save the file. Close gedit.

4. Enter the following into the terminal:

Code: Select all
sudo chmod a+x /usr/local/bin/skype


5. right-click on the Menu button on your panel.

6. Alter the Skype shortcut to launch "/usr/local/bin/skype" instead of "skype %U"

This should run fine. Note, I am running X86_64 Linux Mint 14 w/ Cinnamon.

Thanks so much for your reply. It doesn't work forme, (also using Cinnamon now). But hope this will help others.

Cheers!

PS: Using GoogleTalk plug in now and works fine!
