    I installed V4l2ucp but was unsuccessful in get the right USB webcam to control.

    If I try to open the start preview it exits with code 0

    Do you mean you have more than one webcam you are trying to control ?

    Any other suggestions pl. let me know.
    Post the output of this command run in the terminal with the webcam/s plugged in..
    Code:

    Robert Shearer,

    Thank you for your reply, I was able to locate the web cam device from the I/p's you gave me.

    But when I try to open that device in the utility Video 4 Linux I get an error -

    p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; } Unable to open file /dev/bus/usb/002/002
    Inappropriate ioctl for device

    and the answer to your other question is I just have 1 webcam

    What applications are you wanting to use the webcam in...

    The answer to the two questions above will determine what I can suggest you try next.
