I have a laptop with faulty LCD-panel cable. This cable is routed to LCD-panel and web-cam with microphone. The LCD-panel works normally, but webcam and microphone are faulty. I do not plan to visit repair, so I hope to get software based solution. Really I do not use this webcam and have bluetooth handset for mic replacement.
Currently I know that webcam is at
I want do blacklist this port.
If it matters,
lsusb says currently the following about this device:
Bus 002 Device 053: ID 04f2:b330 Chicony Electronics Co., Ltd Asus 720p CMOS webcam
and Device 053 has an increment.
It floods syslog with messages like
- usb 2-1.5: new high-speed USB device number 29 using ehci-pci
- usb 2-1.5: device descriptor read/64, error -71
- usb 2-1.5: USB disconnect, device number 23.
uvcvideo driver blacklisting it floods the
$ ls -alh /var/log/uvcdynctrl-udev.log -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 8,1G Apr 17 18:20 /var/log/uvcdynctrl-udev.log
So I have already blacklisted
uvcvideo kernel driver by placing
blacklist uvcvideo to
/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-uvc.conf. But this single measure does not help.
How should I blacklist faulty internal USB port with connected webcam completely?
