Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

OS: 14.04 LTS (install-upgrade from 10.04) Skype: installed from ubuntu software center ( Cam: Logitech c525 (usb)

The camera does not work in a call. The funny thing is that the camera works when I enter Skype settings (the red light flashes and i can see myself in the displayed window). There are no other programmes installed (ok, Rhytmbox, Evolution, and an old and not working OpenOffice from the previous 10.04 OS).

The installed versin of Ubuntu is 64 bit.

Any suggestion?

Please have in mind I am only a user and not familiar with commands (syntax) and troubleshooting.

Thank you for your time and advice!
