I just installed 12.10 on my Lenovo y510 laptop. The webcam worked fine while setting up Ubuntu, it also works fine with Google Chat and Cheese. But with Skype 4, the video is inverted 180 degrees. I didn't see any options within Skype to fix it. How can I fix this?
I followed this article and it worked for me.
1. Rename /usr/bin/skype to /usr/bin/skype.original.
2. Create a new /user/bin/skype file.
3. Paste the following:
4. Save & exit gedit.
5. Make /usr/bin/skype executable.
6. Start Skype as you normally would.
