Asus U6S/U6SG webcam orientation fix on Linux

Filed under: Hardware, UNIX & Linux — Tags: , , , , — martin @ 9:53 pm

This nice little patch from ubuntuforums.org (the first one, patch_solution1_mirrored.txt) against the stock uvcvideo driver fixes the upside-down issue with the U6S built-in webcam on Linux.

Don’t bother copy-and-pasting the patch from the forum. It won’t work. Grab a login at bugmenot.com and download the patch file from the bottom of the forum post instead.

In order to get it to work in Skype, I had to edit my ~/.Skype/*/config.xml as follows:


    <Video>
      <Disable>0</Disable>
    </Video>

(Are you happy now, G., you crazy fook?)
