View Full Version : [kubuntu] Switch on webcam LEDs ?

November 27th, 2010, 07:13 PM
Hello all,
for a project of mine I'd like to be able to control the 4 LEDs present on a Hercules webcam (driver sonixj). The webcam works fine, but I don't know how to control the LEDs. I ran some searches and aparently no Linux app uses camera LEDs, they only care about the video flux. There were some pointers to /sys/class/leds but I don't have that. Also some talks about using GPIOs, which I know how to use on embedded devices, but here I don't know which one it could be:
$ find /sys/ -iname "*gpio*"

Any pointers ? Thanks.
