I am using the Linux operating system almost a year ago, and used many distributions of Linux distributions and the fundamental problem for which they moved between different distributions is a problem that the sound and the camera is not working in the program source or program pidgen I do not know what the reason,

I now use the distro version is the last two buttons,, 32 bit
 Was tired of the large number of complaint, I did not help me, even though the sound and camera work with the skype - but I ask is I want to run the mic and the camera so that I can make voice chat and video and audio, I think that this is not impossible,

What is the solution ..

I am a man of Egypt, and Egyptian community here in Kuwait with a population of 400,000 people, has tried with many of them to convince them to shift to the use of the operating system (Linux), but what stands between us and the Linux operating system is the subject of (Conversation with sound and image) - If the solution This problem should note that the number of users operating system (Linux) will increase about 200 000 at least this year,

What is the solution,,,, thank you,,,
