Logitech Webcam doesn't work in LM KDE10 64bit

Post by srini2174 »

Hi,
My Logitech QuickCam Messanger Webcam doesn't work anymore in Linux Mint KDE 10 64bit. Also The system becomes sluggish if I set the Compositing type to "Opengl". I had to change it to XRender for the system to be usable. I have never seen this issue in any of the previous versions of LMKDE.

Try making a file called skype.sh, make it executable with the following content:

#! /bin/sh
export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l2convert.so
skype

Hi,
Yes. It works now. Thanks for your info. The other issue with "OpenGL" still remains.
