I have an integrated webcam in my Lenovo T430, and it is apparently supported on Ubuntu 12.04. I don't see it listed when I run lsusb or lspci. Any other options I can try?

It should be compatible with my system (Ubuntu 12.04, kernel 3.5.0-42-generic). I have tried the hardware on/off key based on other forum posts. It is not showing up in lsusb:

ryan@ryan:~/Code/Notebooks$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub

It should return something like the following (based on another laptop that I believe to be a working clone):

lsusb | grep Chi
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 04f2:b2da Chicony Electronics Co., Ltd

Here is a dump from lsinput

It should return something analogous to:

/dev/input/event4
   bustype : BUS_USB
   vendor  : 0x4f2
   product : 0xb2da

   name    : "Integrated Camera"
   phys    : "usb-0000:00:1a.0-1.6/button"
   bits ev : EV_SYN EV_KEY

Any ideas on what more to try? Thanks!
