Title: Laptop Webcams work on Linux?
Post by: johnwalker1 on July 29, 2020, 06:35:52 pm
Do built-in-webcams on laptops work out of the box with debian based distros? im about to install mint on my college laptop but i wanna make sure i can still do video calls with the built in webcam. All the resources i have found just say that USB webcams work.
If it doesn't work right away, do you know of what drivers to install to make it work?

Hi johnwalker1 and welcome to the forums!

Webcams 'normally' work out of the box in Linux.  If yours doesn't, please post your system specs on here for others to take a look.  ;)
