Slacko 5.4 on ASUS K52F

When I used to run Ubuntu, I managed to alter some settings in Gnome that eventually got Skype to have the video the right way up.

Trouble is, with Puppy, its a whole other different set of software.

Does anyone with an ASUS laptop know how to get around this issue?

You need v4l-utils. On an ASUS K52N with the same issue I compiled v4l-utils from ppa to solve the problem in lucid puppy:

https://launchpad.net/~libv4l/+archive/ppa

Edit: ppa is changed, try:

http://linuxtv.org/downloads/v4l-utils/

If slacko 5.4 did not come with v4l-utils try to download the latest v4l-utils. Then compile with:

Code:
./configure
make PREFIX=/usr
make install PREFIX=/usr DESTDIR=/root/my-documents/DIR
cd /root/my-documents
dir2pet DIR
mv DIR.pet v4l-utils-xxx.pet


Then, after installing the pet, when using the webcam with skype, for example, you must launch it with:

Code:
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype


I solved in this way but I have not been using that laptop from sometime ago.

Asus k52n has the same problem.
