In-built Webcam

Postby IndyUK » Mon Aug 27, 2007 7:30 pm


Is there a driver I can use to get my in-built webcam to work? In Windows it was known as BisonCam and worked fine with Yahoo Messenger, and that's basically the functionality I'm looking to replicate in Linux.

Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome to Mint IndyUK
It seems that this webcam does not have a Linux driver, but that some driver is in the making ... -round-up/
There were few links in english for BisonCam, quite a few in other languages if you search for it
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
