The cam is also listed on the uvc page you sited, so that seems aYour cam is supported by UVC driver. Use luvcview
definitive answer. Thanks for your help
to test the cam.
Most viewer application not (yet) able to use V4L2 devices :-( What is the
desired use of this cam?
college 3,000 miles away from home. I was thinking ekiga. Naturally,
once I have it, I'll do other stuff too.
Even if the applications don't work, shouldn't the correct driver itself
turn on the camera? Or does the driver not turn on the cam until it
gets a call from the application?
Thanks for your help.
You need the SDL development package installed.
"sudo apt-get install libsdl1.2-dev" should do the trick.
After that run "make" again. And if you don't get an error, run "sudo make install".
Run "luvcview -h" to see the options you can specify.
ekgia seems to be compatible with V4L2, but I can not test because I don't have
a cam which has a V4L2 driver yet :-(
Did you try to use ekgia to get a picture from the cam?
And what do you mean with "shouldn't the correct driver itself turn on the
camera?", the camera gets its power from the USB socket and is turned on as soon
as you plug it in. Video streaming starts only if an application asks for a stream.
