Ubuntu : How to Upside-Down Image From ASUS Camera

I am using ASUS K40In. I have a problem in Linux and Windows with ASUS camera. The image from this ASUS camera is upside-down. I can solve this problem in Windows with update the driver. But, I can not get the new driver to resolve this problem in Linux. I use Ubuntu 10.04 as my favorite Linux OS. This is a method how to resolve upside-down image from ASUS camera in Linux.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libv4l
sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude install gtk-v4l libv4l-0

If you using Ubuntu Linux 32 bit :

sudo su
echo -e '#!/bin/sh\nLD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so $1\nexit 0' > /bin/webcamWrapper
chmod +x /bin/webcamWrapper
exit

If you use Ubuntu 32 bit, you can now run programs like this to fix webcam upside-down image:

webcamWrapper skype
webcamWrapper amsn
webcamWrapper cheese

If Ubuntu Linux 64 bit:

sudo su
echo -e '#!/bin/sh\nLD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so $1\nexit 0' > /bin/webcamWrapper
echo -e '#!/bin/sh\nLD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l1compat.so $1\nexit 0' > /bin/webcamWrapper32
chmod +x /bin/webcamWrapper
