How can I make my webcam work?

Postby deka316 » Thu May 28, 2009 8:02 pm

Hi, I am a noob and I have been trying unsuccessfully to get my webcam to work, I am using Linux Mint 6 Felicia right now. My webcam works in Chesse but is really dark, in Kopete it shows in the config options that it sees the webcam is there but the image is choppy and doesent work at all. Here is the output I get from lsusb in terminal: dekaband@indestructable1 ~ $ lsusb
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0483:2015 SGS Thomson Microelectronics TouchChip® Fingerprint Reader
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 007: ID 093a:2460 Pixart Imaging, Inc. Q-TEC WEBCAM 100
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 046d:c00c Logitech, Inc. Optical Wheel Mouse
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

Any Ideas what to do next? I don't know how to install a webcam in Linux and I don't think the kernel has this one, and even if I knew how to install a webcam driver I have no idea where to find this one! If you could help that would rock, if you need any more info just let me know and I'll post it, cheers.

I tried it, but it didn't work for me. Thank you though. Does anybody have a solution that might work?
