I've had this laptop for awhile and never even bothered to see if the webcam works since i wasn't using it. now i wouldn't mind using it so i'm trying to get it to detect and so far i haven't had much luck. i'm using a MSI GX620 laptop with ubuntu 10.04. i tried using the capture on VLC but that gave me the error:



VLC is unable to open the MRL 'v4l2://'


i saw in another thread it should have /dev/video0 or something similar after the //? i installed cheese and that didn't see the cam so i opened gstreamer-properties to test the video input and it gives this message:


gstreamer-properties-Message: Error running pipeline 'Video for Linux 2 (v4l2)': Cannot identify device '/dev/video0'. [v4l2_calls.c(488): gst_v4l2_open (): /GstPipeline:pipeline0/GstV4l2Src:v4l2src1:
system error: No such file or directory]


lsmod | grep videodev didn't respond with any messages and i saw in another thread that someone else recommended trying



modprobe videodev
modprobe v4l1-compat
modprobe v4l2-common
modprobe compat_ioctl32


which gives me:


lsmod | grep videodev
videodev 40518 2 uvcvideo,v4l2_common
v4l1_compat 15495 2 uvcvideo,videodev
v4l2_compat_ioctl32 11892 1 videodev



i don't see any webcam listed under lspci or lsusb, but they're also copied below in case i'm missing something.
