View Full Version : Easycam installation in jaunty

March 24th, 2009, 05:40 AM
I am trying to install easycam to install my webcam drivers in jaunty, but the repo provided in the ubuntu wiki is for hardy, and when i add it to my sources and try to install it, it just throws an error.

Anyone have any luck of getting it installed?

hi there,
what error are you getting?
The hardy repo (assuming these two are the ones you added:) (src is optional)

deb http://blognux.free.fr/ubuntu hardy main
deb-src http://blognux.free.fr/ubuntu hardy main

should work fine on your jaunty system.

Also, as an alternative to installing them with apt, you could make sure you have all dependencies, and download the .deb file, and manually install it with dpkg. But first paste the errors you're getting here.

there is none i dont think, the guy who makes the program has to package it for other distros, or provide the source at least...which i am not seeing
