Linux++:::: Quicky: Logitech Go webcam on linux
Posted at 11.Feb,2007 20:09  Comments 4 / Trackbacks 0 / Like this post!
Technorati tag(s):

Got myself a webcam, Logitech Go, or Logitech Express elsewhere.

Initially, I hoped that everything work off the bat. But no dice. A bt of twiddling was needed.

lsusb shows:

  Bus 001 Device 002: ID 046d:092f Logitech, Inc.

I initially compiled and installed qc-usb. That was the wrong one. After a few google search, spca5x was the one I needed.

a yum search spca5x revealed that I should use gspcav1. After installation, plugged in my webcam, and all is peachy.

with kopete, I started a webcam session with someone on yahoo, and all works to perfection!

ain't that cool or ain't that cool!

as it says, logitech express.

Tnx.
