    Are you running a gui on the server, or just cli ?

    What do you see in dmseg / ls usb when you plug the eyetoy in?

    Check back and see my earlier post about command lines for viewing and recording webcam....

    Can you view the webcam output from a ssh -X session?

    I've not done a web interface webcam setup with the eyetoy, so will have to do some research about the best way to go about this...but I think "motion" is in the repos and offers a web interface

    I haven't tried the rest, but try this:

    wget http://www.rastageeks.org/downloads/...g-1.5.9.tar.gz

    The driver name has changed.

    Also, that's not the way to get it to work now. Read backwards through the thread....

    Before you do anything, you are required to have an Eyetoy Webcam, here is a picture:

    Step 1: Inserting the Eyetoy and checking if it is detected by Ubuntu.
    First, plug in the USB into the USB slot, and enter Device Manager (System>Administration>Device Manager).
    Scroll down, and see if the Eyetoy was detected by Ubuntu. It should look something like this.

    Step 2: Downloading and Installing the drivers needed.
    Load Terminal (Applications>Accesories>Terminal) and type in these commands:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r`
    This will download and install the things needed to install the drivers. It will also download and install the headers for the kernel you are using.

    Code:
    wget http://www.rastageeks.org/downloads/ov51x-jpeg/ov51x-jpeg-1.0.0.tar.gz
    This will begin to download the driver. Make sure you save it into your home directory.

    Now, type in the following commands:
    Code:
    tar -xvf ov51x-jpeg-0.5.4.tar.gz
    cd ov51x-jpeg-0.5.4
    This will enter the directory for the drivers.

    Now, lets install the drivers:
    Code:
    sudo make install
    sudo modprobe videodev
    sudo modprobe i2c_core
    sudo insmod /lib/modules/`uname -r`/extra/ov51x.ko
    sudo insmod /lib/modules/`uname -r`/extra/ov519_decomp.ko
    Type these in 1 line at a time!.

    Now, to see if it worked, type into terminal:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xawtv
    This will install "xawtv" where you can view the webcam, and see if it was working.
    Here is mine (note that I am mucking around with settings, so the hue and stuff is mucked up so its brighter then it really is:
    http://i100.photobucket.com/albums/m...r231/xawtv.png

    If anyone has the sound working, please PM me ASAP.
    Having problems with
    wget http://www.rastageeks.org/downloads/...g-1.0.0.tar.gz

    404 not found error.... pls update.....
