Arrow Kopete Web Cam support issues...


I am having issues getting my webcam to work on Kopete (Logitech Quickcam for Notebooks). The Webcam works fine in Ekiga with sound and all but Kopete doesn't even recognize my webcam, all that shows is a blue box with a bunch of empty boxes. I am running my webcam on v4l2 with zc0301 for Ekiga and thats what Kopete uses AFIAK too. gspcav1 is also installed. Anyways, any ideas? Here is some info below:

Distro: Fedora 7, kernel 2.6.21-1.3228.fc7
Kopete Version: 0.12.4, KDE Version: 3.5.6

Any Ideas?
