[ 711.352011] usb 3-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 3
[ 711.556351] usb 3-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
Bus 003 Device 003: ID 093a:2628 Pixart Imaging, Inc.
so a workaround is to preload a libv4l-compat library:
which is your vendor/product ID for the webcam you get your own enquiries on mint, and ubuntu and then you getlinux configure 093a:2628
which is installed in mint I believe; (you can check through synaptic)# apt-get install libv4l-0
and thenexport LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so
if you really want to use a webcam, perhaps you try to source the cheapest on this list: folks seem willing to say "UVC just WORKS .........."
such brand names as logitech stand out:
I own a NE878 which, acccording to forums, should work with a generic driver, but as a windows user who came over to Linux, I'm VERY disappointed that it's so hard to find info on this on the Mint website, so hard to implement an externally sourced driver in Linux if you're not a geek.
Fedora taunts wide webcam support... if this is all open-source, why is it so hard to port over such support?
