I have a webcam, mic, and printer I want to get working (if possible) on Kubuntu 14.04.
The webcam is the highest priority for what I want to get working. Currently, it works in cheese, but isn't working at all in Skype (the option for a video call isn't even there).
I'm using a Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000.
A Snowball Ice Blue Mic and
a Lexmark 2404939 X2670 All-in-One Printer Copy/Print/Scan.
Any advice for any of these would be welcomed, priority going to the webcam preferably as I used that one the most, it has a mic, and it's the most important.
I tried this:
ferociousmadman@ferociousmadman-CM5675:~$ LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype &
but got this:
 2962 ferociousmadman@ferociousmadman-CM5675:~$ ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (cannot open shared object file): ignored.
The cam worked for a video call while I had the konsole open, but then stopped when I closed it. It is no longer working now. It's just gray or trippy rainbow colors appear. My snowball mic works though. I just had to change the order of what the primary mic was in my sound settings. I still need help with my printer/scanner machine as well.
