SL510: Webcam doesn't work in Linux

[ Edited ]

Hello,

I installed Linux on my SL510 and I'm not able to make my webcam work. From several discussions I know that the camera should be internally connected via USB. Is that information right? Because my 'lsusb' shows usb root hubs only. Do I need to make some additional steps to enable the camera in Linux?

 

Thanks in advance.

What distro are you using? Have you tried to use skype? Or there is a
package called cheese you can install it .

I was using Ubuntu 10.09, now I've updated to 11.04. I tried to use camera mainly with Cheese, but also with other apps like Skype. No software can detect it. And 'lsusb' doesn't show it. I tried to remove module 'thinkpad_acpi' as I heard it's not fully compatible with SL510, but Cheese gets frozen at start then, which is quite strange behaviour.
