[Fixed] Skype - no webcam detected

Sun Jan 28, 2018 12:03 am

Hi guys,

Since i installed Solus last year i can't make my usb webcam to work on skype.
I read on skype support forums that version skypeforlinux_8.10.0.4_amd64.deb has no webcam bug.
I have downloaded it
but my lame problem is that i can't install that version on Solus - i'm a simple linux user only...
Can you guys help me somehow to install it?

Thanks a lot!

With a little help from solus irc channel i got skypeforlinux_8.10.0.4_amd64.deb installed and now the webcam is working.
That is only version that has no webcam problems.
