webcam support

Post by miris »

I have recently installed LXDE which replaced by XFCE installation. I am much more happy with it at the moment but have run into an issue with my web cam. I have Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 which worked reasonably fine with XFCE but in LXDE I see no place to configure it. I am not a linux power user, unfortunately, but found out the webcam is detected. It, however, does not load any drivers.

Is there any way to make the cam work?

If I run

Code: Select all

lsmod |grep vide
in a terminal I get the following ( for a different webcam):

Code: Select all

uvcvideo               56990  0 
videodev               34361  1 uvcvideo
v4l1_compat            13251  2 uvcvideo,videodev
video                  17375  1 i915
output                  1871  1 video
Do you get anything like this? Can you post the result of lsmod |grep video.
