I have been having a problem with my built-in camera and i start to think that maybe its a usb port issue..
I think, maybe, 4 years ago i disabled on windows the usb port of my camera… I dont remember for sure if and what i did. but maybe i did it in the interface of windows.
Currently on my computer i have only Ubuntu 20.04.
I have a few questions:
- is there a way to find out the status of that usb port?
- is there a way to enable it through Ubuntu?
I’ve had this issue since 4 years, so i got to google it quite a lot. I tried all the Ubuntu answers, and nothing worked, but there were a few cases where getting the camera to work on windows solved the problem on Ubuntu as well, and a few where turning back on the usb port required windows..
following these clues:
- Would installing a vm of windows – could i renable the usb port
- or i have to install proper windows on my computer?
Thank a lot for any answers :]
