As Bogusław said, this mod will probably never come out.

Same as above. “Fix” for webcam is to go Cheese, and apply vertical flip effect. Magically, this fixes webcam in Empathy and many other apps. fglrx drivers work fine for me. Microphone issue is HUGE for me, since I cannot chat without it. Can someone fix it? I have noticed that Ubuntu has some awareness of the microphone the first time I connect it in a session.

Ubuntu 10.04 “Lucid Lynx”
