easynote alp-isis webcam drivers
« on: September 19, 2020, 10:50:38 am »
Please can anyone help. Just installed peppermint 10 (32 bit) on this old laptop. Can't seem to get the webcam working. Are there any drivers needed for this?

Please keep it simple as I am very new to linux and peppermint.

Thank you

Bob

Not sure if the built in microphone is working either!
