Default dell mini 9 ubuntu webcam question - 06-05-2009, 02:38 AM


just got my mini 9 with ubuntu and the webcam doesnt seem to work with/be recognized by web sites (facebook,, etc.). it seems to work fine in the dell web chat app, but not on web-based things.

anything i'm missing here?

probably a basic question, but any help would be appreciated.

works fine with skype, also with dell video chat.

checked ubuntu help community, installed all updates, still nothing on or facebook. strange. couldnt find anything in firefox preferences or add-ons, etc.

i'll keep poking around with canonical and dell. i get the feeling there's a missing driver or something, but i'm new to ubuntu and don't even know what i don't know yet.
