Sweex motion cam1.3Mp drivers install via wine..


I have downloaded the drivers for the cam they are in zip format.
I have changed the permissions to read write too .
I 've opened the file to find the .exe and when i went to proceed with opening it with wine a pop said 'If this is downloaded from web it might be danger! .etc

I* had the whole thing running on win. but i now only use Ubuntu on this Acer 5315 . Everything works pretty out the bow besides the tuning of the peripherals such as the Joystick ,camera ,

* do have a second cam that worked straight off with cheese. Great !! but the Sweex cam needs its own drivers since it also swivels & pans etc.
link : http://www.sweex.com/nl/assortiment/...ivers_firmware

* separated the drivers from the whole Sweex folder as to make it easier for a newbie like me . Only to get stuck with a zip Zip

That's why I'm posting it here. Hopefully others that might have an issue with installing such a cam could fine a solution & save time ...
thanks

I have managed to install the drivers successfully. an .exe was within the WD040 folder and i changed the permissions ,the amp file loads to and I have the ion on the taskbar for a quick launch. But Still ... it does'nt wanna light up. I had noticed a difference on win 32bit& 64bit version it did'nt work with the latter.

I am now gonna remove the whole thing because my screen is flashing.. gotta go ..
