Logitech quickcam fusion won't work


I've searched around to find out how to make my webcamera work. But no luck.

lsusb gives this
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 046d:08c1 Logitech, Inc.

I use ubuntu 6.06 but any kind of help would be kind.
I installed "canorama" which say: Could not connect to device /dev/video0

If lsusb returns a line it's got the module loaded I guess...
Is the videodev kernel module loaded?
Are there any USB-related messages in dmesg or syslog?

Sorry. Videodev is the module you get when you say "yes" to kernel-compiling "Video for Linux" (V4L). Feeding the device ID (08c1) to The Linux-USB device overview website yields http://www.qbik.ch/usb/devices/showdev.php?id=3544 which refers to an experimental driver at http://linux-uvc.berlios.de/. You'll have to get the source with SVN.

dmesg gives:
[ 58.329486] Linux video capture interface: v2.00

UVC module fails to initialize webcam

i did this and it didn't work; skype still has no video devices found:


(x-posted from http://www.dellcommunity.com/support...hread.id=13835)

---
I did a clean install with the thin display/UVC webcam. now it won't work at all. Here's the relevant section of dmesg output:


[ 20.719793] uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device Laptop Integrated Webcam (05a9:7670)
[ 20.720088] uvcvideo: Failed to query (135) UVC control 1 (unit 0) : -32 (exp. 26).
[ 20.720337] uvcvideo: Failed to query (129) UVC control 1 (unit 0) : -32 (exp. 26).
[ 20.720340] uvcvideo: Failed to initialize the device (-5).
[ 20.720371] usbcore: registered new interface driver uvcvideo
[ 20.720374] USB Video Class driver (v0.1.0)

---

Found more information on the problem here: http://developer.berlios.de/feature/...&group_id=5681

---

And fixed it by installing the latest UVC module from svn:

1. install prereqs if you don't have them

sudo aptitude install subversion build-essential

2. back up current module, just in case

sudo cp /lib/modules/2.6.24-16-generic/ubuntu/media/usbvideo/uvcvideo.ko /lib/modules/2.6.24-16-generic/ubuntu/media/usbvideo/uvcvideo.ko.bak


3. Check out latest source code

svn checkout svn://svn.berlios.de/linux-uvc/linux-uvc/trunk


4. go to the 'trunk' directory

cd trunk


5. Edit Makefile

nano Makefile (or use gedit or whatever you like)

6. Change the line starting with INSTALL_MOD_DIR to this:

INSTALL_MOD_DIR := /lib/modules/$(KERNEL_VERSION)/ubuntu/media/usbvideo

7. Install it

make

sudo make install


8. Reboot


dmesg still gave me a "Failed to query" line, but everything works now! Tested in Cheese and Ekiga.
