This is the driver you need > http://wiki.mediati.org/R5u870 > your webcam (Bus 005 Device 006: ID 05ca:183a Ricoh Co., Ltd) is listed under Supported Devices.

HEY EVERYONE

for all those people who have got their webcams working on ekiga but after a sec or so they begin showing distortions with funny black/red/pink/green colors.....i found a sollution:

when you start ekiga webcam, when this distortion happens....just clik on the brightness slider in the video tab (even the minutest adjustment will do) and the distortions are all gone...even after you restart ekiga again....However you have to do this after each reboot.

can't get device qualifier: Operation not permitted
can't get debug descriptor: Operation not permitted
cannot read device status, Operation not permitted (1)I tried to open the first link but is broken, and the second is for me a bit difficult! I block myself at the start, when he say:
"Put the files with ".patch" in the sources folder and run them. We need this patches because we don't want the webcam to be upside down."

But which source folder? In the archive there isn't a source folder.. :S

Another (basical) question: is that driver works also for me? I'm on Lucid! :D

Thanks in advance! :D

EDIT: perhaps I have another webcam.. :( if I search for r5u870 drivers it pops out that those drivers are only for those notebook:

I have a VGN-CR31Z and found this topic from google search because webcam wasn't working under ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

The solution that worked perfectly for me is:

1. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:r5u87x-loader/ppa
2. sudo apt-get update
3. sudo apt-get install r5u87x
4. sudo /usr/share/r5u87x/r5u87x-download-firmware.sh

and i found it here https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/120434 after several hours of searching.

I hope it will help someone!
