Webcam ( logitech communicate usb) and xawtv


Hello, im having this odd problem with the cam. Last time when i installed modules and software it worked well, but now it gaves me this when im trying to run it again:

This is xawtv-3.94, running on Linux/i686 (2.6.8-1-686)
/dev/video0 [v4l]: no overlay support
v4l-conf had some trouble, trying to continue anyway
ioctl: VIDIOC_QUERYCAP(driver="";card="";bus_info="";version=0.0.0;capabilities=0x0 []): Tuntematon virhe 515
Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-ledfixed-medium-r-*--39-*-*-*-c-*-*-*" to type FontStruct
ioctl: VIDIOCSYNC(int=0): Liian pitkä viesti
ioctl: VIDIOCMCAPTURE(frame=0;height=120;width=160;format=15): bad argument
ioctl: VIDIOCMCAPTURE(frame=0;height=120;width=160;format=9): bad argument
ioctl: VIDIOCSYNC(int=0): Liian pitkä viesti
ioctl: VIDIOCSYNC(int=0): Liian pitkä viesti
ioctl: VIDIOCSYNC(int=0): Liian pitkä viesti
ioctl: VIDIOCSYNC(int=0): Liian pitkä viesti
no way to get: 384x288 32 bit TrueColor (LE: bgr-)

Liian pitkä viesti = Too long message in english.

i am getting the same thing, have you tested to see if it works in full screen mode?

i can get mine to work if i go full screen. to do that you can just hit the 'F' key. for me it is an overlay issue, no clue how to fix it as of yet.

[edit to add]

seems to be the exact same issue i have. no overlay support. try the F and i bet you will get a fullscreen mode to work on your camera.
