Last night when I first got this computer set up, my webcam worked in skype, but I couldn’t take pics with it. Today, I asked how to take pics with it, and I was directed to open Cheese- which worked!
But now I want to contact a friend on skype and found that the webcam no longer works on skype. And the microphone, that is built into the webcam isn’t connected at all. skype says it is connected to pulse audio server (whatever that is) and the video screen is black. It says UVC camera but the webcam is logitech and that’s what it used to say when I used it before.
I am new to this, very new. My computer was killed by windows 10 virus and my friend Moss just fixed it and set it up with Ubuntu Mate just last night. I’m an old lady who has been a windows user until the virus hit.
