I will test this next week on our shop computers. If it works well, we will add it to the System76 Driver.
Does it work in 64-bit?
To err is human, to forgive is very ... dog-like.
Yes, it should work fine under 64bit
I went away, in frustration, from this forum. However, recently I remembered having stomped away in disgust, BUT -
With the release of Ubuntu 9.10, I found that the webcam in my SERP2 (yes, I still have and am still using my SERP2 ... my kids didn't want my "old laptop") is now JUST WORKING - no need to roll my own driver. All I had to do was load Karmic Koala and there it was.
However, when my wife wanted a netbook for use in Grad school, we bought her an Acer Aspire One with Windows 7, and I just installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix over Windows 7 (we will never have any Microsoft product in our home ... not even a Microsoft keyboard or mouse).
That little netbook is really nice. For $300, it does anything she wants, and Ubuntu Netbook Remix make good use of the 600 pixel high display. It cost me less than $20 to buy an ativa 2GB USB memory device. The web camera in that little netbook is so bright in low light that I wish I had THAT web camera in my "old laptop" -- but at least my SERP2 web cam is now working without having to wait for, or employ, a System76 driver. In fact, I no longer use the System 76 driver on my SERP2 - seems that it is totally unnecessary since Karmic,
Ubuntu is certainly a ready for prime time operating system. When I recently bought a brand new, state of the art HP printer (HP Deskjet F4480), I brought it home, plugged it in, and Ubuntu saw it and installed it, completely plug and play. The only thing I needed to do manually was to install the HP graphic Device manager - and that I was able to find in the Ubuntu repository. It even makes it transparent to access and use the scanner in the HP printer/scanner.
