[Tip] Run webcam incompatible with Skype

Greetings: This trick is for those that Skype does not recognize the webcam although other programs function normally.

The first thing we do is download Skype from the official website. Once you installed, proceed to seek entry into the applications menu and modify some parameters.

Come to System>> Preferences>> Main Menu>> Internet>> We chose the Skype icon and right said properties. which says command ,Should be this way
sudo LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype
Note. If you add the launcher to Cairo dock is not necessary to put sudo before the command, perhaps someone with more knowledge can add that, from the menu, at least I will not let me start unless with sudo before ... But from Cairo dock doing great.
Change can be started from console each time, but be careful that if we close the console closes on Skype too;)

Finally, if you want to undo the change, go to where it says command again and leave it as it was.
