View Full Version : [ubuntu] Chicony USB 2.0 webcam problems

November 8th, 2009, 10:48 AM
Ok i am very new to Linux, just installed ubuntu 9.10 earlier today. But im also not one who expects you guys to do everything for me. Ive read alot of posts and im starting to figure things out. But I cannot get my laptops integrated webcam to work. Ive gotten Cheese and ekiga installed. From a sugestion in an old post, I looked at the kern.log and i did find the three listings of uvcvideo which reconised my webcam (which means the UVC drivers are supposably compatible right?). I get this when i try to select my webcam in ekiga
Error while accessing video device Chicony USB 2.0 Camera

Could not open the chosen channel.

The laptop is a satellite a215-s6816

any ideas? any help is greatly appreciated ;)
