Installed F16 on a quite old laptop (Acer 5672WLMI) of a friend of mine
replacing WinXp: everything is o.k., Fedora is running smoothly, the only
problem is that the webcam is not recognized, also lsusb doesn't show
anything.
I guess that webcam is a Logitech Orbicam, from the specification, also
the
hardware lister doesn't show anything.

Any clue??

Search for uvc (USB Video Class) driver. It may support your webcam
in question.

HTH,
Tommy


tnx

I don't understand why on my personal Acer (That is an Aspire5720) uvcvideo
is loaded....shall I have to try modprobe the driver???

Did you do 'yum search uvc'? I don't remember the off the top of my
head what packages you'll need but according to [1], it should support
your webcam:
046d:09b0 Acer OrbiCam (Acer notebooks) Logitech

from [1] also:
Linux 2.6.26 and newer includes the Linux UVC driver natively. You
will not need to download the driver sources manually unless you want
to test a newer version or help with development.

the UVC 1.1.1 works for both my Logitech Quickcam STX, Orbit MP, and
Lenovo T420 integrated webcam.

HTH,
Tommy

You might need to install libwebcam. Check dmesg if your kernel is
able to detect the webcam:

Note that the UVC has problem detecting my Orbit MP (046d:08c2)
properly upon boot/reboot. I have to disconnect and reconnect it.

HTH,
Tommy

my webcam is integrated so I cannot disconnect it...and I don't see any camera device in lsusb. no improvement also after libwebcam installation.

I have one of those Logitech ball shaped cameras and have
never been able to make it work with Linux even with help
from this list. Bought a more expensive Logitech about a
year ago and it worked with no problems at all! Sounds to me
like you are going through the same thing?
