Question Logitech Quick Cam at Slackware 12.2


I'm a Slackware 12.2 user and I'd like to install my Logiteck Quick Cam installed in it. I've already downloaded the drivers (uvcvideo-326c773da16d), but I don't know what steps to take after unpacking them.

Welcome to LQ

I believe your cam is already detected by the kernel provided with Slackware 12.2. You might try to write the output of lspci here.

I think the output of 'lsusb' might be more useful. The uvc project has been merged into the kernel which 12.2 is using, so unless your webcam requires bleeding edge drivers it should be detected when you plug it in your computer.

If it is detected, opening kopete and going through configure -> video you should be able to see whatever the webcam is seeing.

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 005 Device 004: ID 046d:08ae Logitech, Inc. QuickCam for Notebooks
Bus 005 Device 002: ID 03f0:0a01 Hewlett-Packard ScanJet 2400c
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

Well, as you can see, it's a QuickCam for Notebooks that I want to install. I've been using it in my desktop computer for the last two years. It used to work perfectly in my Kubuntu 7.10, but then I decided to move into a more serious distro, and that's why I'm using Slackware 12.2 now. I knew that with SLACK it wouldn't be like magic to have my computer set, but I want to learn how things work and how to make them work.

Look here:
http://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentat...inux/gspca.txt
and search for the number of the vendor and product, but.......as far i can see, uses the module gspca_zc3xx, try it, is in slack12.2
and i recomend you to download this one
http://slackbuilds.org/repository/12...raries/libv4l/

and run the apps with LD_PRELOAD=/where/installs/the/libv4l

for example:

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype

good luck

As a matter of fact, none of the posts you suggested could provide me with the sort of help I need, as I'm still learning how to use the terminal and its commands. Later tonight, when I get back from work, I'm gonna install the driver you told me about. Could you explain me a bit more about "LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat"?

as specialized pointed out the kernelmodule gspca-zc3xx supports your webcam. plug in your webcam and in a terminal do
Code:
modprobe gspca_zc3xx
the command
Code:
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so program
loads a v4l emulator library on top of the newer v4l2 drivers into the program. you may need this if you want to run apps which do not support v4l2.
