Webcam collapsed againFriday, April 13, 2007 at 0:54 | Posted in linux, ubuntu, webcam | 2 Comments
Yesterday I apparently received a security update of Ubuntu 6.06 dapper after which I was instructed to restart the system. After the boot my Logitech QuickCam Connect was blind. Testing with Skype I detected that the in built microphone still worked but the video drivers were gone.
The same thing happened almost exactly two months ago. Luckily, I was in my senses back then to make this little note. So all I needed was to click here and follow Mattyh’s instructions. Thanks, now I have a camera again. 🙂
Just wandering, if this regular purge of the webcam by Ubuntu is a bug or a feature.
