    Question how to install genius webcam ilook 300 ?

    i have this webcam and CHEESE say it have nt found a webcam of course SKYPE either so none of them can see it.
    i have read a lot of forums but nobody has an answer.

    this is what lsusb say:
    Bus 005 Device 002: ID 093a:2628 Pixart Imaging, Inc.

    Also i have read a while ago that there is a kind of emulator for windows like it can install driver that are made for windows into linux but i dont trust that.
    is there an easy way to make it work?

    I have the same problem. I tried downloading & compiling v4l and it still didn't work. I basicly followed this procedure:

    The 093a:2628 webcams use the gspca pac7311 driver, and should work OOTB.
    If not, try to compile the gspca snapshot.
    Gspca Snapshot is in French, but shouldn't be difficult to understand
