Unhappy Quickcam 10.5.1 wont work on Linux?


I have this on my windows. But it wont work on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 64bit

Is there a driver I need to download for this?

It's my microphone/webcam so no Skype talk on Linux if this doesn't work.

Find the cam...

Open a terminal, type the command "lsusb", and look for the webcam ID listed as a set of characters separated by a ":" The first part is the code for the maker, the second the code for the model. Then google to find how and how well linux supports your webcam either with a kernel module or a driver.

As an example, here is the uvc driver site with a list of the webcams it supports .

Bus 001 Device 005: ID 03f0:2112 Hewlett-Packard OfficeJet Pro L7500
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 046d:09c1 Logitech, Inc. QuickCam Deluxe for Notebooks

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$
They don't support Linux... Just found out... Luckily I can use windows to webcam since I have dual. Untill then either i'll buy a new cam or find a way around it.

If you want to try...

I found that if you look down the list, your Quickcam is supported by three drivers(uvcvideo,pwc,gspca) and works with Skype. If you want to play with it, maybe you can make it work.
