To fix this we need to know exactly which webcam you have
With the webcam connected issue

Code: Select all

lsusb

in a terminal
Then google for the id (some_number:some_number) of the webcam and tell us the result (you will find it :))

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Hi "Husse"
The name of my webcam= logitech QUICKCAM "FUSION" There are 2 hardware parts in it, 1 the camera itself and a microphone. I have no numbers. The camera is connected via usb2. The 2 speakers are connected via my backpanel to my on-bord AC soundcard.

Regards WIM :D

hi,

i have no idea how, but the following code works perfectly! including the built in microphone!
just open a terminal and use the code one line at a time (and occasionally enter your password or choose Yes when asked...)

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r` linux-restricted-modules-`uname -r` build-essential gcc-3.4 subversion
mkdir uvcdriver
cd uvcdriver
svn checkout svn://svn.berlios.de/linux-uvc/linux-uvc/trunk
sudo modprobe uvcvideo trace=15


p.s.
