I've got a new webcam and i can't get it to work under Mint (Elyssa). The manufacturer is "Silverline" and the Model is I CAM 830. It came with an installation disk that had drivers for Windows XP and for Linux. Under XP it works fine.Under Mint, nothing works - the LED doesn't light, Skype doesn't recognise it, etc. The readme file for the linux drivers says that it's a "SN9C201 Linux Driver Ver0.4" and that "This driver is compiled under Fedora Core 4.", so I don't know weather or not I can or should install them. I tried to install the SN9Cxxx drivers from http://www.linux-projects.org
, and I get the error message: "Dependency is not satisfiable: linux-image-generic". According to my synaptic I have linux-image-generic version 126.96.36.199.18 installed.
Any help, please?
