View Full Version : [ubuntu] microdia 045c627b and apps

February 3rd, 2009, 05:28 PM
*i have a microdia 045c627b webcam that is normally detected by ekiga softphone but when it comes to other apps like cheese,camorama and gqcam,i have to type this in a terminal to have them started:
export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so
gqcam -v /dev/video0
*first i would like to know what's wrong and secund i would like to know if there's a way to add a script or something like this to have these apps working out of the box on ubuntu
*thanks in advance

I'm very interested in this since I have the same model as you. Can anyone help?
