No /dev/video* is created.
I have tried following 3 approaches
Installed microdia driver as per instructions from http://groups.google.com/group/microdia/
Still /dev/video* is not created.
Seems the Webcam is not supported yet with microdia driver.
The webcam driver CD has a directory named Linux drivers . Initially thought that this will be useful.
It has 2 files in it ie , linux_120snxcam.o and snxcam.o . tried insmod . But looks like .o extension is no longer supported by new kernels. I am not sure of any way to make the webcam work from these files.
Tried ndiswrapper . Read some where that it can be used for non wireless drivers also . But after installing the driver , The GUI for ndiswrapper says No hardware present.
Seems the Webcam is not supported yet on Ubuntu . Comments please.
