Logitech Drivers e.g. Skype (recently switched distros)

I can not seem to get my webcam (logitech c615) to work with Skype. The video capturing seems to work but besides that nada. I wouldn’t say I’m an experienced Linux user but I know what I’m doing…from time to time.

Anyways, any suggestions? Much appreciated

We are allways interested in the version of openSUSE a question/problem is about.

openSUSE 12.3, I’m more familiar with arch dirivitives

The thread Title says “Logitech” drivers. … I have been using webcams with GNU/Linux for some time and have never read of users successfully using Logitech drivers for GNU/Linux. My recommendation is you forget about using ‘Logitech’ drivers, and instead use an open source driver for your Logitech webcam.

Often a Logitech webcam will use a UVC driver. I note this Logitech web page appears to support my assumption that the driver is the “UVC” : UVC webcam support - Logitech FAQ

The openSUSE webpage wiki for helping with webcams is here: https://en.opensuse.org/HCL:Web_cameras

For us to help determine what driver your webcam is using, it would help if you provided the output of the command (when run in a terminal/konsole):


To get the mic to work with GNU/Linux I recommend you install the application ‘pulse audio volume control’ (pavucontrol) and then check out some guidance in a blog entry of mine: https://forums.opensuse.org/blogs/oldcpu/pulseaudio-basics-opensuse-pavucontrol-96/#comment345

The Logitech model is c615

everything is working, thank you all for the prompt support (that worked). I suppose the thread can be closed


That’s good news. Thanks for replying to the thread.

I have a Logitech webcam on my openSUSE GNU/Linux desktop and my (87+ year old) mother has a Logitech webcam on her openSUSE GNU/Linux desktop. Both of us are pleased with the operation under openSUSE.
