I am a very new Ubuntu 12.04 user and would like to install Skype. It used to be available from Ubuntu Software Centre but it is no longer available from there. So I downloaded it and installed same. The Ubuntu SC Installed section does not list it But Ubuntu Tweak does. Skype works for sound only but no webcam = Logitec QuickCam Express 046d:0928. Could you please help to make it work. According what I read it should work out of the box BUT it does not. Your advise/help by email to would be most appreciated. Kindest regards Bela Yorke

This question is only an hour old, but you're asking about Ubuntu 12.04?

By not running the latest version of Ubuntu, you're going to be missing out on a lot of drivers. Grab the most recent version or use "sudo do-release-upgrade" at a command line prompt.
