View Full Version : [ubuntu] Crystal eye webcam on Acer 5710 on intrepid

Hi all, this is my first post on forum, I'm italian (sorry for my english).
I've got an Acer 5710 with crystal eye webcam, to getting it works I did a lot of things:
1) I download and make the newest uvc-video driver http://linuxtv.org/hg/, after this the webcam light turns on but skype or cheese doesn't works.
2) On the net I found several how-to that says to mount uvcvideo or usbvision kernel module after the installation of uvc-video driver... in my system (kernel 2.6.27-14) those modules are already present.

Two questions:
1- Is there a reliable howto to solve this problem?
2- After launching
modprobe -l I see a lot of modules that seems to control webcam: usbvideo, usbvision, uvcvideo etc... is it possible that its causes conflicts each other?
