How to handle a TRUST webcam with ubuntu and skype?
Basicaly plug it in and run skype. But, instead of run skype simple with the skype command, run it with this command:
If you want to configure the luncher write in the command field, instead:
bash -c ‘LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype’
In case you don’t have libv4… just install it,
sudo aptitude install libv4l
It should work properly. However, I could not get an image with very good quality… but.. it works. In case that it doesn’t even with this command go to the Skype Options, Video Options, and select the USB Camera device.
