Connecting a Trust cam. to linux box


I have a friend that is trying to connect a Trust 820 camera to her laptop which is running Linux. She has the USB cable and has downloaded pictures to the laptop, we just need to tie in the webcam functions. I have been to the Trust web page and done searches for drivers with no luck. Anyone got any ideas? I have done a little with Linux but not much, we could sure use some help.

Thanks, Bill

I have used the stv680 drivers with a Trust camera before, in conjunction with gqcam. That seemed to work for video feed.
