Re: Howto Get Eyetoy Webcam working for Ubuntu
Been fighting to get a cam working on my box for the last couple of years. I have gspca installed. inserted eyetoy, recognised by Xubuntu. Dmesg gives me this:
and eyetoy worked immediately in Cheese and gstreamer-properties.

It also half works in Skype, but I get thick pink & grey horizontal lines across the picture. Still, it's progress! [EDIT] this appears to be a resolution issue, because if I set the output resolution to 320x240 in cheese I get the same pink and green lines. Works for video chat, but my caller gets the lines at their end too.
