I have an Acer 5100-5840 and have not been able to get it to work here either. From my trials I have tried loading the gspca module but using an app like kopete would still not find it. So pretty much given up. Might try loading that module and give it a try on yours. hardware on these Acers differ so much.

Well got to mess around today and found UVC. Works with my Acer webcam as detailed above. http://openfacts.berlios.de/index-en...itle=Linux+UVC

I downloaded the SVN source file and extracted to a directory.
Ran ' make ' and then ' make install '
I was then able to run the command ' /sbin/modprobe uvcvideo '
Ran the command ' dmesg ' to see the results.

Next installed luvcview and ran the command luvcview after it was installed.
Green light came on and a window open with my face in it.

Brian
