    lsusb gives

    user@user-desktop:~$ lsusb
    Bus 002 Device 002: ID 045e:0734 Microsoft Corp. Wireless Optical Desktop 700
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 001 Device 003: ID 1871:0101 Aveo Technology Corp.
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    user@user-desktop:~$

    The microscope is at least detected.

    Any help with drivers and image editing software would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    is detected by cheese, but the view seems not correct. The snapshot button is doing fine.
    guvcview seems to give better results - but still not perfect.

    Is it one of those Bresser ones from Lidl?
    We bought one today, and it does work with cheese.

    Haven't tried the Windows software yet.
    At 20x it easiest to get an image from one of the supplied samples.

    Searching for the vendorid:deviceid brought me here.

    Yes, it's the one which is currently sold at lidl. Looks like it is fully supported. I have to do some test with the colour - but I have a lack of time.
    Also guvcview is doing fine - probably more fine tuning.
