Q: I get the following error message:
qc-driver.c:51: linux/version.h: No such file or directory
qc-driver.c:52: parse error
or
.../include/linux/config.h:4: linux/autoconf.h: No such file or directory
or
sed: can't read /usr/src/linux/Makefile: No such file or directory
or
Makefile:26: /usr/src/linux/.config: No such file or directory
A: You must install Linux kernel source code corresponding
to the kernel you will be running with the camera driver.
The source must be configured and depencies must have been
created. Typically you can just install the kernel source
package that comes with your distribution. If you're instead using
virgin kernel in /usr/src/linux-x.y.zz, you must first copy
kernel configuration file to /usr/src/linux-x.y.zz/.config,
then go to the directory and run "make oldconfig" and "make dep".
You may also need to type
cd /usr/src/linux-x.y.zz
make include/linux/version.h
This should create the missing linux/version.h file.

No..its in syanaptic..its the source code for the kernel..
with the cam pluged in usb port..what does lsusb say..what chipset is that cam using?
If its using chipsets on this page you can use gspca
http://mxhaard.free.fr/spca5xx.html
it shows listing for Logitech quickcams
On debian the modules are in repos..try searching for it syanptic to see if Ubuntu has them..

Alright, I went into Synaptic and installed the kernel source code and everything that said something about Logitech QuickCam Express. What now?
