    Greetings; I use an AA1 with Linpus and have installed Skype 2.0 for Linux. It works fine, and I can see my correspondent when he turns on his video, but I cannot activate the webcam built into the AA1 during a Skype call. I tried after starting the webcam app. but no dice. Am I missing something?
    Thanks!

    you may need to go into options and tell it to start your camera for all callers, not just the ones in your contact list. Makes sure the video and autostart boxes are checked make sure the camera is selected (/dev/video0) and then use the test function...
    Ok :?:
