i have a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 10th gen. It came with Ubuntu 20.04 preinstalled and the webcam (IPU6 Intel) worked fine, I think because an additional driver was installed by default, but when I upgraded and installed Ubuntu 22.04 the webcam doesn't work anymore. Does anyone have the same problem?

I'm in the same boat and have done a bunch of research on the issue. There's no official fix today but things do look promising.

Post back here if you get it fixed and I'll do the same.

  • I have the same issue with Thinkpad X1 Carbon Gen 10, Kubuntu 22.04. Tried installing from source and also this askubuntu.com/a/1417193 Now the cam is detected by chrome as "Virtual Camera", but instead of image shows some stipes like No Signal image. As of time writing, this state led to OOM and v4l2-relayd was killed thus reverting me to "No camera found" state.

  • Also now I am experiencing this issue mail-archive.com/[email protected]/… EDIT: Problematic v4l2-relayd comes from libcamhal-ipu6ep0 from here ppa:oem-solutions-group/intel-ipu6 So if there are any news about the bugs resolution/workarounds for cameras would be glad to hear
