Activate Facetime webcam on Ubuntu

  • sudo apt-get install git
  • sudo apt-get install curl xzcat cpio
  • git clone https://github.com/patjak/facetimehd-firmware.git
  • cd facetimehd-firmware
  • make
  • sudo make install
  • cd ..
  • sudo apt-get install kmod libssl-dev checkinstall
  • git clone https://github.com/patjak/bcwc_pcie.git
  • cd bcwc_pcie
  • make
  • sudo make install
  • sudo depmod
  • sudo modprobe -r bdc_pci
  • sudo modprobe facetimehd
  • sudo nano /etc/modules
  • add line "facetimehd", write out (ctl+o) & close

Adding facetimehd to /etc/modules doesn't seem to work for me...
