Webcam problem LMDE XFCE

Postby elmaga on Thu Sep 29, 2011 5:21 pm

Hi everyone.
I'm running XFCE version of LMDE and I have a problem with my webcam.

lsusb output:

The last line is my cam.

I tried with these drivers (I remembered they worked with Ubuntu) and followed their Debian installing instructions.



When I enter
Code: Select all
m-a -t a-i ov51x-jpeg


I get an error.

The webcam actually works with almost everything and it's recognized (/dev/video0) but I can't get it to work with Skype. That's the only thing that actually matters.
I have kernel 3.0.0-1-686-pae and I've already installed all the required headers.


Any idea?
