PostPosted: Fri 09 Sep 2011, 04:14    Post subject:  problem installing webcamera  

Hi
I need to know how to go about installing this old web cam in Puppy 5.1.1
I plugged the webcam in and nothing happens
What should I do now?
I should point out that this webcam does not work in both Windows XP and Windows 7 either. They detect some kind of USB webcam, but cannot install the driver, even after running the setup file of the webcam. However, there is a green light in front of the webcam (I thought it was the power indicator or something) and it turns on as soon as I insert the webcam in a USB port, but this doesn't happen in Puppy

Here is the message that I get in Device Manager in Windows

Code:

This device is not configured correctly. (Code 1)

Not enough storage is available to complete this operation.


To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver.


What does it mean by not enough storage is available?
Since this is an old webcam there is a possibility of some kind of hardware damage in the webcam as well. Is there anyway I can check for this?

I will provide further information if needed

Thanks in advance

mahaju

I never could get the applications for the webcam to work for me either.
I then did a search of the forum for Guvcview.
You might find it in the Additional Software - Graphics section.

Anyway, it worked for me without having to hunt drivers.

Better yet, just look here.

Mahaju,

what make/model webcam? If you run Menu>System>HardInfo>USB, what does HardInfo say your webcam's VendorID & ProductID's are?

omg
If 8-bit couldn't get it to work I doubt if I can Confused
Anyway this is what hardinfo says about my USB webcam:

Code:

Device Information:
   
Product  --> USB Camera

Port #7

    Speed    -->  15.00Mbit/s

    Max Current --> 500mA

Misc

   USB Version --> 1.10

   Revision    --> 1.01

   Class       --> 0x0

   Vendor      --> 0xc45

   Product ID  --> 0x602d

   Bus --> 2

   Level --> 2
   
 


By the way, there is a software called lucview already present in the Multimedia entry in Puppy's start menu, but it says it can't detect my webcam

any ideas on what I should do now?

Thanks

PS: I would be greatful if I can get it to work under Windows as well, so please give me some ideas on what I should do
I'm not sure about the brand of the webcam, it has ADDION written on it, but a google search for the ADDION webcam driver doesn't give anything

This is what appears on the title bar of the Webcam driver and software installation program:
Code:
Lebeca PC_Camera Software Installation Ver 4.17.1.0

Hash values of the file:
MD5 -> AD 0C 82 61 B5 D8 9B 1E 69 12 8C D5 BD 20 9D 4B
SHA-1 -> 0D A6 0E 62 ED A0 1F 03 23 0A B6 67 72 18 00 35 C0 52 25 DC

Sorry, have no idea regarding windows, but if you re-read 8-bit's comments, about Guvcview, he says:

If you run lsmod | more, in a console, is gspca listed as a module. If not, try running modprobe gspca

Regarding Guvcview, I can't recall if pup511 came with it, but it's definitely in later puppies.

For Windows, maybe here?

Just googled for 'lebeca web cam driver' Wink

Edit Luvgview, built in 5.1.1 should be OK for testing.
Maybe this thread could be helpful, e.g. this post, just a wild guess.

Thanks to everyone
I think I should try installing Gucview as well, but it'll have to wait till tomorrow
@rhadon: I have already downloaded that. I was told that it is the latest Lebeca driver in a Windows 7 forum, but it's still not working
Any other ideas please?

Would getting the drivers of this Trust Webcam for Linux solve my problem as well?
