View Full Version : [ubuntu] Technika Webcam doesnt work

July 2nd, 2009, 10:22 AM

I have just moved back to using Ubuntu and I have been trying to get my webcamera to work but it just isn't.
It's a Technika Techweb1 bought from Tesco's and I'm using Ubuntu 8.10 at the minute.
I tried downloading Camorama and Skype and testing it with these but neither of these work.

Camorama just gives me an error message:
"Unable to capture image"

I have the same POS webcam and it was so bad under Windows that when I stopped using Windows I never bothered trying to get it to work under ubuntu. However, dug it out and I can report that Cheese Webcam Booth gets an image (albeit redish and way "overexposed"), Camorama can't get an image and lsusb reports it as
Bus 004 Device 003: ID 093a:262a Pixart Imaging, Inc.
