My webcam is not being detected by any program. I've installed cheese and got "device not found". Running "xinput --list" does not have anything related to a cam.

How do I enable the webcam in Loki?

    There might be no driver for your webcam. Can you provide further details? (lshw, lspci, lsusb, etc.) – lemonslice Feb 14 '17 at 9:55
  • Good point. I have included the output of all three commands you've listed – MAA Feb 14 '17 at 14:07
