That link unfortunately doesn't tell us anything about the precise camera type or model .... OK, we know it's a Logitech ... but which type precisely? I had hoped for a more precise model name or something like that.Uncle Bob wrote:Maybe a Linux Guru on the forum can come up with a possible solution?
He was talking of the Windows drivers. Quote: "the windows driver for your laptop model can be found here"ml2 wrote: on that page, it says that only Windowses are compatible.

That would be a good idea! Any model name, type, number, whatever would help.ml2 wrote:I will try and find the exact model of the camera from my Windows devices list.
The link I provided was for the WINDOWS driver for the build-in camera used on this particular laptop model. There are no other drivers for the camera, thus it has to be the only one that Dell uses. Unfortunately they do not supply more info about the camera apart from the fact that it is a Logitech. Search the Dell site yourself to confirm. Now, I do not know the difference between drivers used in Windows and that of Linux, but obviously there's a huge one.I have a Dell XPS M1210 laptop with Intel integrated graphics. I have not been able to get the webcam to work...blah-blah-blah
Uncle Bob wrote:ml2, I think you made a mistake in getting a Dell machine. Why do I say so? Well, let me tell you why. There is a worldwide conspiracy between the Big Evil One and Dell to hamper all all non-MS operating systems. If you open your machine up, you'll find that there's this mysterious little black chip somewhere on the circuitry. This little chip has two functions. The first function is a that of a countdown timer. It counts down the time until the end of the warranty period (plus 1 day) and once that is done, it will then randomly fry and/or corrupt a component on your machine, forcing you to buy another one seeing as you're now out of your warranty period.
The second function is that it constantly scans to see what OS is used, if it is non-MS; then it will randomly corrupt device drivers and make your life a living hell.
I got issued with a Dell Latitude D620 during the week, which I made dual-boot with mint within an hour of receiving it. (congrats to clem as this was very easy to perform). Anyway, on the Windows side Vista runs smoothly, the Aero crap is there, the wifi, BT and IR works good. However, on the Linux side, Beryl does not like my graphics, so no Beryl, I cannot get the wifi to work nor can I get the IR to work. I have not yet attempted to try BT yet. Currently I'm still trying IR. On another post I got some advice with IR, and when doing the test "sudo modprobe irda0 " it sees my phone as a Sony Ericsson but then I get all sorts of errors about missing drivers etc and I'm back to square one so I still cannot use it.
