Hi guys,

I have sued the search function for this and couldn't find a solution so I decided to make my own thread on this.

Anyway, I want to use my MS Lifecam VX-3000 with Ubuntu but I don't know how to get it to work, the light stays on all the time and obviously there are no drivers for it.

Here is an output of lsusb to show the cam is detected.

I would be very grateful if someone can help me fix this, it's the only thing bugging me in linux.
