I have a Lenovo X201 that I just installed Fedora 28 on and ran all of the updates. It appears that there is a driver missing because the camera doesn't work with Skype. Any ideas?

@Jim Copenhaver Please execute this step in terminal and update your post :

  1. Check in BIOS if integrated camera is enabled.
  2. lsusb
  3. modprobe uvcvideo
  4. dmesg, look for USB camera messages -> dmesg | grep uvc*
  5. Install and execute guvcview sudo dnf install guvcview and execute guvcview , check it's work here
  6. Maybe is a skype problem let's see with all this information

It turned out to be a problem with Skype. I removed it and reinstalled it and it worked like a champ. Thanks for the help!
