Install the package "libv4l-0" and start skype with the command

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

in a terminal.

A page called google.com tell me this:
http://linuxhcl.com/browse/product?id=6426


"works well once installed the right kernel module
the instructions to install kernel module are very easy to find
there are problems with skype due to the Skype software unless you
change some parameters manually

perhaps the next versions of skype will solve the problem"

Skype won't work Creative Live! Cam Vista IM
 
In Terminal:

jimkvg@jimkvg-MS-7549:~$ LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype
ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so' from LD_PRELOAD
cannot be preloaded: ignored.


Huh! I think I already installed "libv4l-0" before, but still not
working! Guess I'll have to wait for update from Skype. Hopefully
very soon!

Thank you Nils

Sorry, my bad, but I have a lame excuse: I'm still using Lucid myself
and there it would work. However I just checked the path on Oneiric and
there the librirary is at a different place, so the command would be

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype

instead. Hopefully that works - I can't test it myself because I can't
accept the Skype EULA.

I wouldn't hold my breath ... since Skype is owned by Microsoft now, I
would expect the Linux version of Skype to get even less developer time
assigned.

Sorry, that was wrong again :(

As you are using 64 bit Oneiric it should be this:

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype
