    first see if its detected by the computer with:

    Code:
    lsusb
    if it is, then see if its working by installing cheese:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install cheese

    I just went to the Logitech site and it explicitly says the C270 doesn't support Linux:

    http://logitech-en-amr.custhelp.com/...7665/related/1

    Sorry about that. I was looking for decent Linux compatible camera too.

    That logitech does not support linux, does not entail that linux does not support logitech cameras.

    To the OP: follow the first bit of advice, run cheese from cli, and paste any error output.

    True. I suppose that was a logical fallacy on my part.

    Re: Logitech C270 webcam install.

    I installed my Logitech C270 about 10 minutes ago in Ubuntu 13.04. It didn't work at first, so I unplugged the USB plug and plugged it back in, then it worked.

    On Ubuntu 13.04, the device is called:
    ID 046d:0825 Logitech, Inc. Webcam C270 when I use the command 'lsusb' in the terminal
    UVC Camera (046d:0825) (PTLIB/V4L2) in Ekiga
    UVC Camera (046d:0825) (/dev/video0) in Skype.

    I haven't downloaded anything additional, so it must work with the drivers built into Ubuntu 13.04.

    Re: Logitech C270 webcam install.

    Hi there!
    I've just bought a C270 camera, and it works fine when it is connected to USB 2.0 port, but when I plug it into USB 3.0 it doesn't.
    When I plug it to the USB3 Ubuntu recognizes the camera, but when I start Cheese and select it, the camera hangs up.

    I don't know if the camera doesn't support usb3, or if I’m doing something wrong, or If something’s disabled on my system..

    I am using Ubuntu 12.04 in an ASUS Zenbook UX31E.

    dmesg response when I connect the camera:

    Code:

    EDIT:

    I've recently updated the kernel version to 3.14.17 (https://github.com/pwr/Solaar/issues/153). When I connect the camera to the usb3 port, dmesg says:

    Code:
    [  931.037871] usb 2-1: new high-speed USB device number 5 using xhci_hcd
    [  931.439632] usb 2-1: New USB device found, idVendor=046d, idProduct=0825
    [  931.439644] usb 2-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=0, Product=0, SerialNumber=2
    [  931.439650] usb 2-1: SerialNumber: 65745460
    [  931.440623] uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device <unnamed> (046d:0825)
    [  931.531079] input: UVC Camera (046d:0825) as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1c.3/0000:03:00.0/usb2/2-1/2-1:1.0/input/input22
    (same as before)

    I've tried to use the camera using guvcview, but the video isn't fluid.. I mean, it seems the camera is working at 3 fps, but guvcview says it is working at 45/60 fps...
    At this point, dmesg result has a lot of "[ 862.441020] xhci_hcd 0000:03:00.0: ERROR Unknown event condition, HC probably busted" messages, and I find out it means that the "error will only print when there's a vendor-specific error code, or some other completion code that the xHCI driver doesn't understand" (http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-usb/msg84324.html).

    I've tested the camera in my work's computer (it has ubuntu 12.04 and the 3.14 kernel version, as I do), and the camera works Ok.
