Integrated webcam not recognized - Dell Latitude E6400

Post by xlepws » Mon Feb 16, 2015 5:30 pm

Hi, I have an old Dell Latitude E6400 where I have installed Mint 17 (Cinnamon 2.2.16).

What are the steps to make it recognize the internal webcam? It won't show its light, ever.
Cheese doesn't recognize it either.

Mind you, I just noticed your post is nearly 3 years old so maybe you have moved on to a higher spec machine. If you did get a solution could you post it here. Thanks a lot.
