    webcam

    Hello
    I have an old webcam from the genius brand, but I did not find a driver for everything I searched on the internet.
    Of course, I used lsusb and it gave the following answer

    If you boot the system without the webcam installed then log in. Let the system settle then plug in webcam. Press CTRL + ALT + T and run:
    Code:
    dmesg | tail ; lsb_release -a; uname -a
    What is the output please?
