Logitech Vision Pro in Linux-having problems Wed Oct 29, 2008 4:18:19 AM#77888Perm Link
I purchased a Logitech Vision Pro as a result of Aron Schatz's review on here. »http://www.aselabs.com/articles.php?id=268
I just wanted a Plug and Play webcam for Linux. The new v4l2 system sounds perfect. My webcam is not being recognised in Linux.
What software do I need to install to get Linux to recognise the Vision Pro.
Any assistance will be gratefully received.
Thanks for your reply.
I am using Mepis Beta 2 (7.9.80) which should have the uvcvideo drivers built into the kernel.
When I plug in the Vision Pro I get the correct recognition codes 046d and 09a6.
The driver names listed when I go into terminal/Konsole are:
videodev 27136 1 uvcvideo
v4l1_compat 12932 2 uvcvideo, videodev
I have never heard of "Cheese". Is this okay with KDE?
I thought (wrongly) that because of v4l2 I would be fine.
Just to give you some further info, when I search in Synaptic for uvc and v4l2ucp (I installed this one) I get:
