@textilis
For taking snaps with your camera, try xsane. That should provide sufficient options and menus

>>Allend.

Thanks. I'll have a play with it.
(I hadn't even considered looking at xsane, having associated it in my mind
exclusively with scanners and scanning.)

Cheers.

I have discovered that with gimp I should be able to take snapshots with my old sn9c102 driver camera. So I tried that and walla the camera shows up in gimp but I am lost as to how to use the camera from there. I have a symlink to xsane and the drivers for video0/1 appear but that is all I can figure out.

>>Waddles, sorry about time lapse; been away.

Could you repost this in a new thread, as I don't think you are going to attract sufficient attention down here

Cheers and good luck
