Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 on Ubuntu + Skype

Quick note to self, to save some searching next time.

Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 does not quite work on Ubuntu and even worse with Skype. To get video working on Skype, start it as : env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/ skype

And to get the microphone working, run this in a terminal sudo rmmod gspca_sonixj sudo modprobe gspca_sonixj
