This question already has an answer here:

I just installed ubuntu 12.04 on Think pad X230i (Intel® Core™ i3-3110M CPU @ 2.40GHz × 4).

There is a built-in webcam that was active during the installation process but know I don't find it. Actually, I did not find it in the Systemm Settings.

Has anybody an idea?
