    Lego Studios webcam and Ubuntu?

    I found an old Lego Studios webcam and was wondering if anyone's been able to get it working on Ubuntu?

    Thanks

    Question Re: Lego Studios webcam and Ubuntu?

    I'm trying to get the Lego Studios webcam to work under Linux. It seems to be the same as the Lego Mindstorms vision command webcam / Logitech QuickCam Web.

    There is a read-only thread on the forums about this webcam: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...ht=lego+webcam

    Despite the discussion in that thread, they never got the webcam to work.

    Does anyone have any idea as to how to get this webcam working?

    The camera doesn't work with Cheese - it says "No camera found!".

    thus is probably going to happen with cheapo/ no name brands, its no fault of linux.
    Buy professional hardware with good linux track records, its like owning a mac in this respect.

    I always use Ekiga to test webcams, you can try different drivers like v4l and v4l2 and see if they can autodetect the cam before trying something more strenuous.
