I hope someone can come back and help me with this. I was unable to make my vx-3000 works on my 8.10 Ubuntu. I tried with 8.04, maybe similiar with 8.10?

I have followed the instruction from http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...vx-3000+webcam, and downloaded from http://mxhaard.free.fr/download.html. Then click gspcav1-20071224.

But seems my outcome is not what I expected?
