Question Problem to install a webcam logitech under Nouvalinux


Sorry, but it seems I have put my 1st thread on the wrong forum... here the one I post on general...

Hi all,

I'm new to the community, I have lately bought a computer which is under Nouvalinux.
I have an old webcam, which was still working under windows and I would like to use it under Nouvalinux, but Linux didn't find it. In fact, I don't even know where to look on linux to add a "peripherique" (sorry, but I am French also lol).
I work as civil servant in french administration called Gendarmerie Nationale, french administrations have decided 2 years ago to choose Linux instead of Windows...
I decided to have a linux at home, to improve my level on this system.

My cam is a logitech quickcam chat V-UAP14 visible on : http://www.logitech.fr/fr-fr/support/3383?crid=405

Can you help me to install it on my computer ?
Merci d'avance (Thanks).

Hi

can you plug your webcam in and as a non-root user post the full contents of this command pls
Code:
lsusb | grep Logitech
it may be here
http://mxhaard.free.fr/spca5xx.html

please confirm your product id is 0x092c we know your product id is 0x046d

If so, leaping ahead now see if your module is loaded already?

Code:
lsmod | grep spca5
I hope its unlikely, but your kernel for your distro may not offer module support for your webcam
go to /boot/config (your kernel) and open it with a text editor

search or scroll down to see this section
# Webcam devices

you should see things like
CONFIG_USB_GSPCA=m
and you will need another one like
CONFIG_USB_GSPCA_SPCA505=m

google suggests you need the 561A----but that is a MAC google hit.
http://webcam-osx.sourceforge.net/cameras/
but my config only has
CONFIG_USB_GSPCA_SPCA561=m whether its the same I don't know, ie is the linux driver SPCA561 or not?

good luck
