This quick fix applies to owners of Asus laptops mostly with uvcvideo driver on openSuse 11.4 64 bit. The main point is to flip the camera image to be ok on Skype. First check if you have libv4l-32bit package installed (with the required dependencies). Then create or edit an application launcher and in the Application tab for command enter:
export LIBV4LCONTROL_FLAGS=3 && LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype
That’s it. Here is a screenshot for better view.
