webcams show as black screen in skype
Binary package hint: skype
Ubuntu 10.10 on 32-bit x86
Skype version: 126.96.36.199-1maverick1
I've been using this setup for months with no problems, the camera (a cheap Logitech webcam) always worked "out of the box". Today I installed the new version of skype made available via the Update Manager, and now the webcam does not work - I only see a black screen and the webcam's activity indicator does not activate.
