I'm loving elementary on my macbook pro (manufactured 2017 I believe). Anyone know how to get the integrated camera working so I can use cheese and other video conferencing functions?


I needed to install AppleUSBVideoSupport to Elementary 5.1 (Hara) to get my camera to work on an older 2007 MacBook (2,1). Your MacBook is much newer and can only assume it's the same issue.

This post outlines the steps. There is a "isight-firmware-tools" package to install but before you do that, you have to grab (or download) the support file outlined in this article:


NOTE: as of March 6th, in the event you want to use the iSight in Chrome, I am still working with the Chromium team to recognize the built-in iSight. In Elementary, the default Camera app works and so does Zoom conference software.
