I am impressed with Ubuntu! I have just set up the audio input to my Mikomi Webcam, tested the microphone with "Sound Recorder", and it works perfectly. So thats it, it's up and running ready to chat with family in America and elsewhere!

Mikomi Webcam

Posted 05-22-2009 at 03:40 PM by uinseann

Well I decided not to get a Logitech after all, after reading it had problems with Linux. it seems you can get it working for awhile then it just freezes.

So because of the fact I did get the cheap Mikomi working this week I decided to buy a slightly dearer Mikomi DC-7120 5mp Mic and Zoom (that's what it says on the box). I plugged it in as I started the computer, and it lit up as my desktop appeared. I logged in at Skype and tested the camera, it worked straight away, of course I...

I posted earlier that the frame round Firefox had disappeared. It's very strange because it hasn't happened with Nautilus or any other application window? I installed Opera (didn't keep it long), but the frame was there. Seamonkey was OK as well. I removed Kmess but this didn't rectify the problem. After scratching my head and deciding to re-install Firefox (which didn't work either), I said to myself (I talk to myself now and then, I'm not mad though it's him that's the looney one), why are you...

A very strange thing has just happened! I have lost the border round Firefox? It's not in full screen mode either. The only thing I did last night was, I installed Kmess, which is for my hotmail contacts. I am using Gnome desktop and Kmess is for KDE I know the apps should work OK but it is the only thing I have done. I will remove Kmess and see what happens.

The only other thing is the fact that this version of Ubuntu Ibex has KDE installed, because the DVD came with Linux Format...

Webcam in Ubuntu

Posted 05-18-2009 at 11:49 AM by uinseann

I have a cheap webcam I bought last year! it's a Mikomi 1.3mp webcam with mic.When I type "lsusb" I get this "0c45:612c Microdia PC Camera (SN9C110)". It won't work with Kopete, but it will work with Ekiga?.

I am thinking of buying a Logitech Quickcam 3500. I get conflicting opinions from the web, some say it will work some say it won't. Even Logitechs website confuses the situation (well it does me). I am not knocking Logitech though because I think it's great...
