View Full Version : [ubuntu] Sony Vaio VGN-FZ15G Webcam not working

November 26th, 2010, 04:34 PM
I have installed ubuntu 10.4 and upgraded to 10.10 in a hope that my built in webcam would start working but I have not had any luck yet.
Is there anyone who can help me?

Go to Accessories/terminal and run the command: lsusb

When I do that, one of the lines says:
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0ac8:303b Z-Star Microelectronics Corp. ZC0303 Webcam

The most useful part of that line is "0ac8:303b" which can be plugged into Google along with the word "linux".

That has opened up a few new paths for me to explore. But i think I did something wrong as the code that I am typing from the other peoples posts gives me errors which I am not sure on how to solve. I am trying to find someone here that knows linux better than me to try help me. So thanx for the help so far.
