Dell XPS 17 (L702x) - Maya - Webcam

Post by DMHReaper72 » Wed Oct 10, 2012 12:10 pm

I have recently purchased a Dell XPS 17 (L702x) laptop and installed Maya 64 Cinnamon.

Sadly the Maya is not finding the webcam.

Is there a quick and simple solution to this or am I destined to boot into Windows any time I wish to Skype?

Thank in advance :)

It would be helpful to know if the system is seeing your webcam at all.

Can you launch the "System INformation" Program, and Generate a report and then attach it?

Hi so, a couple of things.
First, please post long output inside of

Code: Select all

 tags... similar to this

[code]
really long text
[./code]

(exclude the period in /code)

Second, I can confirm that your Web cam is being identified as being from a Dell laptop, is this correct?

If it is, I can also confirm that the driver you need (UVC) is currently installed.

This leads me to believe that the webcam is turned off with a hardware switch

Instead of using skype as a test, please see if you can use "cheese", if it is not installed by default (I dont remember because I always in stall it), please install and launch it.

If your web cam turns on after you have confirmed that the hardware/software key is on, then the problem is most likely with Skype itself

Thanks for the reply, apologies for the long post.


I have checked everything as you suggested and arrived at a blank screen in cheese too.

Its a Dell as you suggest, and both Cheese and Skype are reporting it as such.

Hi,

I have the same problem
I have a Dell E5520 with integrated webcam. I have been abel at some stage to pass it to a windows vm and there it was working fine, but I've never been able to get it to work in maya.
i booted the live cd today, because my lsusb doesnt know of it existence, to see what type it is.
according to the live cd is is a

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 1bcf:280b Sunplus Innovation Technology Inc.

But even in the live cd after installing cheese it only gets one photo, then stops working and disappears from the lsusb output
I added some system info, maybe someone can point me n the right direction to get it to work?

kind regards, jeroen

I have now got a working camera. Unfortunately it appears that its not very good at sensing light and switches itself off / goes to black screen quite often.

Is there any setting I can adjust to alleviate this issue?

cheese has some extra required libraries ensure you have all required
it also has a pretty good help menu
for me it tells me the type of camera, and possible resolution
this would confirm your computer is driving the proper camera
the same menu has options for still or video brightness and hue
that might help.
partially working is almost working perfectly !
there is a tutorial in the community forums, written by a frankeinstein

maybe try dmesg | grep -i video (in a terminal)

i tend to hit 'n' run
so good luck
