webcam drivers are built in to the kernels now days
look in applications graphics or sound and video
for the program cheese webcam booth
if not installed open a terminal type
sudo apt-get install cheese click enter
it ask for your pass word you do not see anything as you type click enter
if you have problems look in the cheese help FAQ'S top 1 should be all you need

Is it possible to use a command in terminal window to Download and Install drivers?

Is it possible for me to use a command in terminal window to Download and Install drivers for Logitech C100 webcam.
If so can I copy and paste because I`m DYSLEXIC.DYSLEXIC.DYSLEXIC.

I`m Dsylexic So Typing Takes Me awhile Because I`m Always Making Corrections. Even then I sometmies can not see my mistakes.

Webcam works in cheese and vlc but when I tyr to connect to a site Flash does not give me the option of settings. (Only global settings and about Flash is Highlighted.) settings is grey-ed out.

I am using a compaq presario cq56-107tu laptop.

Also Should I be using a different version of ubuntu. I HAVE tried using ubuntu 10.10 and netbook same problems.

I already posted a similar query but I did not realise that I had not explained my self properly.

Thankyou in advance for any positive feedback.

seeing as you are using Ubuntu , have you read the ubuntu web site? or the documentation?
https://help.ubuntu.com/
http://www.ubuntu.com/support
http://www.ubuntu.com/support/community


you WILL have to read - there is no way around it .
Just like school you will need to do a lot of studying .

https://help.ubuntu.com/10.10/newtoubuntu/C/index.html
https://help.ubuntu.com/community

almost every text based programs have a manual page ( linux basic 101 )
http://rute.2038bug.com/rute.html.gz
and older book but for the terminal it is still accurate

there is a " man " page and a "help " paragraph
type in
Code:
wget --help
-- or this --
man wget
use the "q" to get out of the man page

also
Why do you think you need these "drivers" a logitech web cam should work from the installed kernel and from ubuntu .there should be no need for a "driver"
Now there might be a few exceptions but they would be rare .

the program "cheese " should work .

Okay, let's try this "by example"...

There is the VLC player, a media player that is available for Linux, in Ubuntu, this is what you'd enter in the console

Quote:
% sudo apt-get update
% sudo apt-get install vlc vlc-plugin-pulse mozilla-plugin-vlc
The keyword is apt-get...

Manual for apt-get
http://linux.die.net/man/8/apt-get
and wget in case you need that
http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/manual/wget.html

And, sorry, but this:

still applies...but there IS a community that is willing to help you ... learn this.

What sites are you talking about?
What do you want to change, and more important, what is the problem?

Try to make the changes via this site.

Frustrated dyslexic

no offence peoples but in my post it says Cam works on cheese and vlc. I went to macromedia Flash and used their global settings last week done every thing it says
as I said I am dyslexic and I have downloaded drivers (Ov51x_files) for my webcam as suggested on another forum.But dont know how to extract or make a directory could anyone suggest a version of linux where webcam is auto detected
Or post a script to extract Ov51x_divers for logitech c100 webcam currently sitting in my downloads Folder
I have tried Ubuntu netbook and ubuntu 10.10 same problem.
I do not want to reinstall windows I am not a microsoft fan. Please read my original post
I dont appreciate comments on things that I`ve supposedly not doing.Ie cheese n vlc both work on laptop but do not activate cam on web and when I right click on flash window it gives me a 3 Options a greyed-out SETTINGS OPTION and a Highlighted global settings option and an Highlighted option about Adobe flash 10.2.153.1...

Well if the webcam works in cheese and vlc then you have drivers for it.


Whatever your problem is I don't think it's related to drivers.


I think what you're doing it seeing a problem, making an incorrect assumption about what is causing the problem then asking for help with the problem that you have decided you have (in this case, not having drivers) rather than the problem you actually have. Part of my job is tech support, I've seen people do this too many times. It can make it very hard to help people and usually their problems only get solved when someone gets sent out to actually talk to them in person and is able to see what the real problem is.


Provide a coherent description of the actual problem you are having and maybe someone can help you. So far it seems to be something to do with using your webcam with Adobe Flash on a website.

You seem to have a habit of starting new threads, if you do that, at least mark the previous thread solved or something so people know not to waste time contributing to it.

In this case I merged your two threads. Next time I'll just close the dupe.
