Using Trust webcam


Hi guys bit of a problem with a webcam I recently bought. Its a Trust 380 Spacec@m that I saw for 20 in a bargain pc shop, I bought it unfortunately with out really thinking about compatibility. I know this wasn't the cleverest thing to do but it was cheap.

The thing is I am struggling to find a suitable driver or alternative that will allow me to access the thing and wondered if anyone had any ideas about what I could use. The trust website has no support for linux (surprise surprise!) So any thoughts on what I might be able to do about this problem.

Cheers

You could post the output of the lsusb command. You will probably have to be logged in as root, and have your Trust webcam plugged in. Then, visit the URL listed below, as it appears they support some of the Trust Webcam devices:
