Thinkpad X260 and I am running Manjaro KDE. After the recent stable-update, the builtin webcam stopped working.
For instance, when I open google meet or zoom, even in the settings page (of each application) and in the actual calls, the webcam does not work, That is, no image is seen. (When I activate a video-call or goto the settings (of zoom or google-meet) and click on camera, the yellow-led beside the webcam light-ups, but immediately goes off.)
Can anyone please help me in resolving this? I need this to work to take classes.
Below is hardware configuration of the builtin webcam (got through
