Not going to give up on this - but as I have Skype on my Iphone4 its not the end of the world if I can't get Skype working on the UX

as I said if it works in cheese, it should work in all other apps. Suspect bad install of skype, possible uninstall and reinstall?

On test video on my skype all seems to work there.

hey dogturd, it is a known issue with skype 2.2. I just updated, and vola, web cam does not work in skype now more. Others having the same issues in linux with logitech web cams even. trying to find a 2.1 skype deb file since 2.2 is actually worse than 2.1!

Hey Bigs, thanks for the discovery. I tried to hunt down previous deb files for Skype to no avail, if you manage to get better luck can you point me in the right direction please.
thanks

Don't like to go down the torrent route as you never know what you will end up with - but searched and searched Google, all the links for older versions all point back to Skype 2.2 download.

hi dog turd, try this link

http://www.hotfilesearch.com/download/44787424-skype-ubuntu-intrepid.2.1.0.81-1.i386.deb.html

not surehow long it will be there for but since it is a legit file, it should stay there for a while.

Use synaptic to uninstall the latest skype and install this.

I have tested this and skype video now works!

Nothing wrong with you ux, its between skype and ubuntu and certain webcams having issues here ;)

Problem solved!

Hey Bigs result :-) now have Skype on the UX, thank you. I have saved the deb file within dropbox so I don't lose it. When I do the SSD upgrade I'll use this file.
