I am fairly new user to Ubuntu. I have a fresh install of 64 bit Ubuntu 12.10 with the gnome remix. The laptop is Lenovo thinkpad T430u. The issue is my integrated laptop webcam is not working with Skype and Cheese.

as the webcam identifies.
With guvcview the camera works (poor choppy video quality). I installed skype from the Skype webpage and used the mixed architecture 12.04 download. I hope some one can provide a solution! Will be glad to give more info if needed! I know there are a lot of similar questions on askubuntu but in my case the webcam seems to be identified and works with one software. Moreover I had a previous 12.04 installation of ubuntu where skype video worked like a charm on the very same machine!
