Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub


the cam seems to be the Z Star Microelectronics Corp

this is the message from dmesg


[ 13.645409] uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device HP 3-MegaPixel Webcam GX607AA (0ac8:c315)
[ 13.649389] input: HP 3-MegaPixel Webcam GX607AA as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.1/usb1/1-4/1-4:1.0/input/input6


which seems like its not mapping it to /dev/video0

cat /dev/video0 produces a message saying no such device.

any help would be appreciated.

ok kinda got it working... but not enough to view a decent image.

Ran this command

trent@trent-desktop:~$ vlc -- enable-v4l2 v4l2://devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.1/usb1/1-4/1-4:1.0/input/input6

which produced this in the console
