Hi there.
The problem could be as simple as not having the updated java and flash software especially if you can see yourself but no-one else can.

Get flash here >>>>>>

Download and install these important files then try your webcam again.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

How do I use the built in webcam for a video in a phone conversation


You'll need to use a software that has video conferencing capabilities. There are some that are specific to video meetings like oovoo or you can use IM software. I know that Yahoo Chat allows for video chatting, I've done this on my HP laptop with my sister. Facebook has a video link option, I've never used that one though so I don't know if it allows you to record using Facebook or if you have to upload a video already recorded.

Msn?


Well , right you are , pidgin does not support webchat.

You can definately run executables in linux, its just a little different from the way windows does it.

From what I can find about the interface for your OS, there should be an application launcher that you can use to browse to the program you downloaded. Even then it may not be compatible with the kernel you are running.

If you cant get to it that way you will have to open a terminal.

Fn-F2 brings up a command line where you can launch the terminal.

Depending on how it is setup, it should take you to a prompt in you /home directory.

You can then execute the file you downloaded by typing in ./filename

If that program you tried doesnt work , here is another that may.

Can not down load msn


If you have linux on your aspire 1 then you can't use the original messenger because it is made for windows systems. you can try using it with Wine or find a linux messenger replacement.

for example Pidgin works with MSN accounts and it has a linux version.

"
IM all your friends in one place Pidgin is an easy to use and free chat client used by millions. Connect to AIM, MSN, Yahoo, and more chat networks all at once."
