View Full Version : Webcam not working
Nov 9th 2011, 06:53 PM
I have a webcam (it was a Xmas gift from my children! :)) :Creative Live! Cam Video IM Pro that will not work in Kubuntu or any Linux distro I have e used ???. I did google and searched the Internet, but no solution was found.
Here is lsusb:
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 041e:4055 Creative Technology, Ltd Live! Cam Video IM Pro
I think there is no driver that fits!
Anyone here that can help?

I can't help directly as I don't have that CAM (I have a buggy and old Logitech QuickCAM Chat), but check these two posts:

I have downloaded the m560x driver, but I do not know how to compile it! :(

This is actually a better description. Alter it to suit the driver you downloaded.

Just in case, start from the preparing the system to build Kernel modules.

I try to compile the driver, but it will not compile.
There are also several directories and I do not know which one to use or compile.
Here are the directories:
branches Documentation firmware tags testprograms trunk
Here is the result when I tried to compile the files in the "trunk" dir:
make -C /lib/modules/3.0.0-12-generic/build SUBDIRS=/home/per/m560x-driver/m560x/trunk/km_m560x modules

"Ingen slik fil eller filkatalog" this translated to english: No such file or dir
The file "n560x_core.c" does exist:

Hmmm.... I'm looking into it. Hopefully I can figure it out in the next few minutes.

Okay, I'm looking at the readme file, and it's "a sub driver for the gspcav2 project. It cannot work with out gspvav2."
So, I ran an experiment - I fetched the v4l-dvb tarball and added the driver in as documented in the read me, but v4l-dvb won't compile for me due to it being depreciated. I'm out of time right now, but maybe someone can figure out how to get v4l-dvb to compile with the driver added in. I believe once v4l-dvb can be compiled it will work.
