  1. WebCam in Ubuntu

    Hey people! I'm new here, but in last threads here is nothing about
    WebCams, so i'm just wonna ask you, hope somebody could help me with my
    problem?!
    I've Panasonic NV-GS15 and would like to use it like WebCam in Ubuntu,
    but... Any program detects it! Oh, not any, only aMSN, and there it's
    working great! In Skype, Camorama and Cheese always negative result!
    "Couldn't connect to device" "Webcam is not detected" and so on... Is
    there posibility, how could I install/administrate my WebCam in system?
    with best regards, Nomad.

  5. Re: WebCam in Ubuntu

    So your camera is USB id 04da:2318 , or NV-GS180, as you mentioned.

    I believe that it is covered by the uvcvideo.

    Try this:

    1) In one terminal, type

    sudo tail -f /var/log/messages

    and keep it running to see messages while in another window you type:

    2)

    sudo modprobe uvcvideo

    and see what tail prints.

    Here's a good thread about it

    That thread has a few webcam progs mentioned. But I think that it
    should work with Skype. My webcam is also uvcvideo and it does work
    with Skype.

    If you get it to work, note that you may need to load uvcvideo driver
    every time you reboot, which can be automated. But just keep it in
    mind. If you reboot and camera does not work again, that's because you
    need to load driver again.

    Ask how you can automate that when you get to that point. (you need to
    set up a crontab with a @reboot entry)

    I would at first try a program that simply gets one image from the
    webcam. Such as fswebcam or some such.

    Just so you know you are not beating a dead horse my Logitech QC STX works
    perfectly with Kopete in the 2.6.22-14-generic #1 SMP kernel. There was no
    configuration, just plug and play.

    There are a few files installable through system-> administration->
    Synaptic Package Management that have to do with GD graphics library.
    I don't know which (if any) that you need, but you might try
    installing them to see if that helps. Do a search on GD graphics and
    see what you come up with. I have libgd2-xpm installed but I don't
    know whether that is a default or a dependency installed by some other
    program that I have added. There are some other files that show up in
    the search that might be what you need. Without some better advice
    you will just have to experiment. Usually when you are missing
    something like a library you can find it through Synaptic or by doing
    a web search.
