Non-Functional Camera in Ubuntu
The camera in the XPS 9360 / 9370 may not function with Ubuntu ® 16.04 LTS and the USB Video Class (UVC) firmware version 1.50.
The following steps should resolve the issue in Ubuntu 16.04 ® LTS.
NOTE: This fix is specifically for Ubuntu ® 16.04 LTS since this is a kernel fix. Ubuntu ® 18.04 LTS should get a fix, but there is currently no delivery date for the fix.
- To apply the fix, run the following in Terminal:
sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-hwe-16.04
- Reboot the system.
- To test the fix, install and run the Cheese camera app.
NOTE: If you do not have Cheese installed, you can install it using this command in terminal: sudo apt-get install cheese
