USB 2.0 Camera doesn't work in 5.25 [RESOLVED] Sub_title: need patch in driver ??
Here is the camera my PC use :
# dmesg | grep video
pci 0000:03:00.0: Boot video device
Linux video capture interface: v2.00
uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device USB 2.0 Camera (13d3:5103)
usbcore: registered new interface driver uvcvideo
nothing works (VLC Mplayer Motion ..)
it works perfectly under Windows 7
I could not get the webcam applications in Puppy Lucid 520 to work with my webcam.
In other words, luvcview failed to run and popped up a window stating "Luvcview has encountered an error. Make sure your webcam is connected and configured properly." But there is no info on how to configure the webcam.
I then installed Guvcview and I then had a working application for the webcam.
Oh, I should mention that webcam was built in on my Toshiba laptop.
I have not tried it with Skype though.
But the application allows you to record the video stream and also take snapshots.
