Getting my Logitech Quickcam pro 9000 to work with Ekiga

Hi all,

First of all, nice to meet you, as I am new on the forum, though not so new to Linux.

Well well...

I successfully compiled the last version of Ekiga (3.2.4), and I'm struggling to get my webcam to work with it.

With the previous version (the default one, something around 2.0) it worked just fine when selecting the v4l2, but I believe it is automatic in ekiga3, so I don't know where to head.

It is an Ekiga problem as the webcam works fine with Skype and Cheese.
The weirdest thing is that when I unplug and plug it back, the webcam appears in the Video/Devices, but the webcam doesnt work. And when refreshing with "detect devices", the option is blanked.

Any ideas?

1/ I am running Debian lenny with the kernel: 2.6.26-2-686

2/ The packages that I installed:

Due to compilation problems I also updated the default gtk to gtk+-2.16.0

Troubeshooting link: will try to install xawtv3.95 as they say, right now I'm running into compilation problems... I will keep you informed.


I got xawtv to compile, and the webcam shows fine without the overlay option. It is therefore an ekiga problem.

Any idea?
