Laptop Camera SOLVED
« on: September 05, 2020, 01:46:22 pm »
I'm trying to set mu laptop up for a Google meet. How do I turn the camera on/off?

I've never used the camera so I'm really uncertain what to do. Normally I have it taped off.
(I have removed the tape.)

How can I test the camera under Linux.

(I'm a real newbie to Linux)

You can use guvcview, which comes installed on Peppermint.
