CrystalEye Webcam help

Postby psychomunkey719 » Sun Dec 06, 2009 5:33 pm

I recently installed Linux Mint 8 on my laptop (Acer Aspire 6930), and the webcam doesn't work. I'm completely new to Linux. How do I get it working?

Hello and welcome to Mint. You webcam should just "work". But you can have a look here to see if there are known issues with your laptop or your webcam:

It's functionality also depends on what software you are trying to use it with.
They'll all look at me and say,
Hey look at him! I'll never live that way.
But that's okay -
They're just afraid to change.
