Video camera not working

Hi, linux noob here hoping for a little help. I recently installed EndeavourOS KDE which is just great and works perfectly except for my integrated video camera which as far as I can tell is not recognised by the Linux system. FYI the video camera works perfectly on Windows but not on Linux Mint, EndeavourOS Cinnamon or EndeavourOS KDE. Hope I am not in the wrong forum category.

Many thanks

Might help?

xircon thank you very much - just checking the link now.

It would appear it is a known issue with the Intel MIPI camera driver on my laptop model that is not compatible with Linux. I’ll just have to live with it and swap over to Windows if I want to use it. Thank you for your help, at least I know what the issue is now.
