    Question Genius Hercules Dualpix HD720d webcam not recognised in Ubuntu 12.10

    Hey all,

    I've searched for this, but could not find a fix everywhere. I was given a Genius Hercules Dualpix HD720d webcam, however it is not working on my Ubuntu 12.10 machine.

    When I plug it in, it lights up, so there's definitely a connection, but even Cheese brings the message "No Device Found" which I've never had when I connect any other webcam before. I really do not want to have to buy another webcam, so if someone could help me fix this, it would be greatly appreciated!

    If you would like me to provide you with any results from the terminal, just let me know what to type and I'll respond asap.

    lsusb

    It should produce several lines of output, including one which looks like this:
    Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0ac8:303b Z-Star Microelectronics Corp. ZC0303 Webcam

    The interesting part is "0ac8:303b". Plug that into Google along with some other words such as linux, solved, webcam, usb.

    Thanks for the response... I ran lsusb and got the following:

    I'm guessing the "Bus 006 Device 006: ID 093a:2628 Pixart Imaging, Inc." one is the one you're talking about... so I searched Google for "093a:2628" and still can't find a solution for it

    It appears that is a V4L2 webcam, which is supported in gspca. I found too many references to chase them all, when I Googled: 093a:2628 linux
