    Hi, I am using ubuntu 10.4 on my Sony vaio(VGN-CR320E) laptop.
    In that Motion eye inbuilt camera is there. Camera is not working in ubuntu 10.4, but it worked fine in XP and windows vista.

    The output for the #lsusb command is
    srinivas@srinivas-laptop:~$ lsusb
    Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

    In The above info there is no info about camera. What should i do get the camera info and make it to work.
    please help me to resolve this problem so that i can use inbuilt motion eye camera.


    Thanks in advance

    Re: [SOLVED] Sony Vaio ID 05ca:1839 Motion Eye Webcam HELP!!!!

    Hello guys:
    this camera is annoying me to much.
    This is what i get from the make.log:
    Code:
    /var/lib/dkms/r5u870/0.11.5/build/usbcam/usbcam_util.c: In function ‘usbcam_urb_allocbuf’:

    make: *** [_module_/var/lib/dkms/r5u870/0.11.5/build] Error 2
    By the way I'm using this *.deb
    http://www.arakhne.org/ricoh/
    I think it's the same thing but for some reason the dkms package is not working with the kernel 2.6.35-23-generic.
    Any help???
    thanks


    BIG EDIT: somehow I discovered the link: http://www.gilesbathgate.com/tag/linux/
    and now this stupid camera is working. Thanks to this man, all credits are to him.

    Yet, you get a very lousy picture. the quality is very bad, to say the least. very dark picture. unclear, noisy. it works with one program and's dead with any other. I've arrived to the conclusion that It's not the driver. it could be the kernel, video card or the programs.

    It's the latest kernels. Support for videodev.h has been removed - see comment on Kubuntu Forum http://kubuntuforums.net/forums/inde...opic=3115676.0

    SOLVED (for me anyway):
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...eodev.h&page=3
    I'm running Ubuntu 11.04, kernel 2.6.38-8-generic & works splendidly

    Enter the following lines (one at a time) in the terminal - you will be asked your password after entering the first line (the password entry will not show in the terminal but it is being registered).

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:r5u87x-loader/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install r5u87x
    sudo /usr/share/r5u87x/r5u87x-download-firmware.sh
    You'll get a GPG authentication warning but ignore that & also a y/n warning (enter y) after the last line shown above.

    Good Luck
