install trust webcam/digital camera in debian


hello
i have a sort of digital camera that can be used as webcam manufactured by trust; no drivers available...
I don't know how to set up such hybrid as it's not a proper webcam nor a digital camera such as canon or something similar.
i would like to make it work with mercury/amsn or other msn clone.
thank you

Support is determined largely by the chipset it uses. First thing is to search LQ for threads about your webcam and check the HCL. If nothing turns up then start by plugging in the device, use "lsusb" or "usbmodules" command to see if any modules got loaded and look at your syslog (most likely /var/log/messages) for messages about USB. If it returns any info like Vendor ID strings use that to search the Linux-USB device overview website.
