Need Lifecam 300 for taking profile pictures


I don't use skype but I would like to be able to use my
microsoft lifecam 300 for taking the odd profile picture or
whatever.

I have searched LQ and found nothing but unsolved queries
about this product, concluding that it won't run under
slackware, though it does run under another linux system
I have on my computer: Linux Mint Nadia (i have cheese installed there)

If anyone reading has a simple solution it would be greatly
appreciated.
Thanks

This is the reason it won't work:

Quote:
13 Despite being able to work with lower USB bandwidths, this device always requests the maximum possible bandwidth, even for the MJPEG format. Using one of those cameras in conjunction with another USB device (including the camera internal microphone) will likely fail. You can tell the uvcvideo driver to estimate the required bandwidth instead of trusting the camera by setting the FIX_BANDWIDTH quirk. This will only affect uncompressed formats, and even there there's no guarantee of success. See the FAQ for more information.

There is no slackbuild available (that I know of) for cheese.

I think I might just go and get me a logitech, for which there seems to be good suppurt in slackware.

Thanks! I'll give it a try.
Cheers

Edit: I checked and it was as I thought: it needs kde
packages; i run xfce and no kde, so i'll have to pass.
thanks anyway

It is listed as working using uvc:

Check the "045e:0779 Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000". If you have the uvc drivers installed in the kernel or from the site, it should work.
