Hello dear Ubuntu community

My webcam is not working. On Windows 10 it works fine, no problems. lsusb shows no webcam. Cheese says there is an error.

I am running Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. I am new to Ubuntu so my webcam has never worked, as far as I know.

This is a laptop, model ThinkPad X1 Tablet G2. It is an integrated webcam.

Output of ls -lah /dev/video*:
