comment Setting Skype on VirtualBox guest Ubuntu: no video device found
Also, to echo @Pilot6, this is a configuration on the Host that needs to happen, and as the host is Windows and not Ubuntu the issue needs help from Super User, not here.

comment Setting Skype on VirtualBox guest Ubuntu: no video device found
It's entirely possible that /dev/video* is not the correct device item when it binds to the guest. However, if VirtualBox can't detach it from the host, then it's entirely possible Windows won't permit you to disconnect it (and Windows is notorious for evil failures like that, and I suggest that if your Host is Windows, to use VMware Player which is free and seems to work a little better with things like attaching/detaching devices)

Not sure we need a whole new tag for "Humor" as I don't see how it's applying to other questions or whether it even needs to exist.

If you upvote this answer, please also upvote mark kirby's answer to this question as well as I only extracted a tidbit from his answer, and he did all the research (and deserves all the credit)

@Maythux follow it's build and install guides. When done, run zint-qt from either Alt+F2 or the command line with an & at the end (to fork it to the background)

@Maythux um... Zint has a GUI you just need the qt4 libraries present at compile time

comment creating a deb package to install extension
I think you will need a script, not a whole package, to achieve this, unless there's a reason you want to make this into a package?

comment Driver aziokbd < (>) key not detected
You are using Debian, not Ubuntu. Drivers for different distributions are NOT guaranteed to work. Also, since you're using Debian, this is offtopic here.
