Laptop builtin camera not recognized - VAIO vgn ar250g


This laptop has no hd so I'm booting up from/with a live cd containing PL 431. Even though I've installed it 3 times in a CF card (either in the usb port via a Motorola interphase for the card & the proper slot for the card directly) using 3 different mbr settings from the 5 options I see when running the installation process it's still to be seen if I ever will be able to boot from something else than the hd or a cd.
What I want to know is if after 'winning' the fight to boot from a CF Card, I'll be able to use the other characteristics of this laptop: Motion Eye built-in camera, some buttons it has for channel-up/down, TV REC, >||, etc.? It also has a coaxial connector at the back side.
Probably I need to gather some extra info about these hardware for you to be able to help & I'm working on that!

Hi Benny7440, Welcome to LQ. Wouldn't it be easier to install a new hard drive? If you can boot from the live disc, please post the output from the following commands to determine your hardware properly.

Code:
$ /sbin/lspci -v
$ /sbin/lsmod
$ /sbin/lsusb
Good luck. ;-)

Sorry Peacedog for not posting the required info but, even though I ran the first one retreiving a couple of pages of info I can't find a command to copy it & paste it here. I know there's some command for doing this but can't find it anywhere. If you tell me how to do it then I'll be able to submit the info hopefully soon (a storm/huricane? is approaching PR, so can't make any appointments for the next few days).

If you're in a terminal, just highlight the text from one window, then press both the left & right mouse buttons simultaneously in the reply window.

Good luck. ;-)

Sorry Peacedog but those instructions didn't work; in fact, it substituted this page for another one. Nothing got copied/pasted, not a hint that I'm grabbing something from the Terminal window. Do you know of a method (probably a keyboard shortcut/key combination) for taking a highlighted text from the terminal window & put it inside the Clipboard? Better yet, is there a way to take the output of each command you suggests me to run & put it in the clipboard directly (a predefined alphanumeric variable or creating a specific file where to put the info)?
Thanks for the help but as I've shown, it's not that easy to help a newbie!

You can create a text file with the information by executing something like this.

Code:
$ command > filename.txt
You can append more data to the file with something like this.

Code:
$ appended_commands >> filename.txt
Good luck. ;-)

I'm sorry to tell you that I tried those commands in Ubuntu & failed to put something in the created file. Don't know if it's something that has to do with the difference in the OSs but the file was created empty. Either there was no output or the system refused to put the output there. In any case I never saw it on the screen either. Crazy things that sometimes happen? I'll check later from the machine in question & thanks a lot!

Maybe I should have been more verbose?

Code:
$ /sbin/lspci -v > forumpost.txt
$ /sbin/lsmod >> forumpost.txt
$ /sbin/lsusb >> forumpost.txt
If all of this executes with out errors, you should have a file in your ~/home named forumpost.txt.

Good luck. ;-)

Slightly off-topic:

Benny
Copy & paste:
Highlight text (or even pictures).
Then middle click will paste it, where you middle-clicked the cursor.
If you do not have a middle-button on your mouse, linux can be configured so clicking L&R at the same time (you do have to be exact with the timing) will be treated as a middle-click.

In many browsers, middle-click also means "Paste and open (the link) you last highlighted". This will happen if you middle-click on a blank bit of browser window. But if you middle-click on the LQ Reply window (where you usually enter text) firefox will understand that you mean to paste text, not a link that should be opened.

You'll need to experiment a bit, but once you get used to it, it is much nicer than the windows way of doing things (OK, I quit at win98, maybe win is better now?).

Hope this helps.

Thanks to both of you for your help, Peacedog & tredegar! That thing of using the mouse wheel for pasting is something that maybe over a year ago I've used (and forgotten), it's a cool feature indeed. {Check the note at the end. After I send this post I'll put something in a usb port & will run the command again; if something different arise I'll post it right away for you to have a look at it.}

Now that you've got the hang of it, we need the lspci output with the -v switch.

Code:
$ /sbin/lspci -v
Good luck. ;-)

Sorry Peacedog for the misunderstanding in relation to the command output's name. In my post I stated it was '/lspci' but what I posted as output was in fact the output of 'lspci -v' (verified a couple of secs. ago). I've put a reformatted mp3 player pendrive in a usb port, mounted it & now I'm going to rerun the last command suggested to see if there's something different, if htere's something to post I'll include it right here next.
# /sbin/lsusb
bash: /sbin/lsusb: No such file or directory
#
As you can see, there's nothing new. By my part I've no clew! Thanks a lot!

Slightly off-topic (again):

Benny,

PATHs:

When you give a command (like lspci) you do not normally have to include the /full/path/to/lspci
Linux searches for the shortname lspci in the directories specified in the $PATH environment variable. This is just a list of directories that are likely to contain commands.

You can list the directories searched for commands, in the order they are searched for, with this:

echo $PATH

You can change your $PATH to include other paths to commands (you can find out how to do that yourself, it's easy).

If you are not sure where a command lives (but it is in your $PATH),
which command will tell you the full path to the command.

If you give a command, and it's not in your $PATH bash will say "command not found", because it can't find it.

That doesn't mean the command does not exist, merely that it can't be found, because it is not on your path, and maybe you need to give the full path to the command like /home/username/stuff_I_Just_Compiled/newprogram.

Try this:
Code:
tred@vaio:~$ echo $PATH
/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games
tred@vaio:~$ which lsusb
/usr/sbin/lsusb
tred@vaio:~$ lsusb
Bus 005 Device 003: ID 07ab:fcfe Freecom Technologies
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 046d:c03f Logitech, Inc. UltraX Optical Mouse
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
tred@vaio:~$
So lsusb is not at /sbin/lsusb it's at /usr/sbin/lsusb and it's on the path, so you just need to type lsusb

Hope that makes things clearer.
Here endeth the lesson.

Thanks tredegar & Peacedog for your help!
In the following lines I'll put the outcome of the new commands (lsusb, which lsusb). Tried both with sudo too, same results???
# lsusb
bash: lsusb: command not found
# which lsusb
#

hi

not finding lsusb?

try

Code:
sudo find / -name lsusb
You can ignore lspci stuff.....its usb for webcams such as mine (and lsmod | grep snd and video)
