As far as I can see the linux kernel does not recognise your camera - it isn’t listed as a USB device.

As Jacob mentioned - you have either turned off the camera or you are unlucky, your brand of laptop contains a camera device that isn’t supported by the linux kernel used on ubuntu 22.10

Do check if you have a hardware switch on your laptop - or possibly a keyboard switch such as a Fn key combination to turn the camera on/off. The hardware switch could just be a slide switch over the camera lens or a physical switch on the side of your laptop.

Thank you for help, guys.

I checked out my computer and realize that my camera device is not supported by linux.
Anyway, i was need an camera for computer. I did some researches and found out new way.
If you want you can turn your phone into webcame for your laptop with an app. It helped mine Zoom meeting.


Can i ask what app did you use and how did you connect your computer to your computer to your phone app?
