Microdia Sonix 0c45:62c0 webcam driver for Mint 8?

Postby ecoshift on Tue Mar 02, 2010 4:30 pm

I'm basically a noob. I've been testing out various flavors of linux for a number of years but have little applicable command line experience.

My PC is a MSI Wind U100 MS-N011 netbook.
I installed Mint 8 Helena Main.
Overall very pleased. Nearly ready to dump Win 7 and commit to Mint as the only operating system on this netbook.
But so far I can't seem to get the built in web cam working. Works fine in Win 7, but nothing in Mint 8.

I've installed cheese and skype but neither of them can find the camera. For a brief moment skype actually listed a usb 2.0 camera as available. But, no image ever emerged and cheese couldn't see it. After a reboot, nothing.

According to lsusb my built-in video cam is:
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0c45:62c0 Microdia Sonix USB 2.0 Camera

Downloaded the MSI Wind linux driver for Suse from the MSI website.
Used alien to convert the .rpm package to a .deb package.
Then installed the .deb package.

No luck...

I also installed a .deb package from a Jaunty repository - microdia-dkms. (okay, that could be a totally clueless move)

No luck...

The only info I see in dmesg output that seems relevant to this beginner is this from my most recent boot:

[ 8.869310] Linux video capture interface: v2.00
[ 9.364686] uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device USB 2.0 Camera (0c45:62c0)
[ 9.382096] input: USB 2.0 Camera as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.7/usb1/1-5/1-5:1.0/input/input9
[ 9.382255] usbcore: registered new interface driver uvcvideo
[ 9.382264] USB Video Class driver (v0.1.0)
[ 9.576593] lp: driver loaded but no devices found

Any suggestions on where I can go from here would be much appreciated...

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

might not be what your looking for and I haven't tried cheese but this worked for Skype using Mint 8 on a HP Pavilion laptop with built in mic and web-cam

Remove your copy of Skype

Go to this website

http://packages.medibuntu.org/pool/non-free/s/skype/

download and install

Skype-common_2.0.0.68+repack-0medibuntu3_all.deb

Skype-static_2.0.0.68+repack-0medibuntu3_i386.deb or 64 bit version if needed

Right click on volume control (speaker icon bottom right of screen)

Choose show mixer window, settings, configure channels tick capture on main mixer window click capture so tick shows

Open Skype from applications and internet

Check with test call and video test.

regards,

I have that Cam and got it to work by installing qc-usb-source in package installer.
Video works,

Sound works but no mic in SKYPE, as I followed the previous mentioned link. Any tips for mic would be appreciated. :?:
