Quickcam Express

Postby imvaughan » Thu Mar 11, 2010 11:20 pm

I already have a webcam, a Logitech Quickcam Express. It is a few years old. I have tried to install it, but without any sucess. The product ID is 0840 and the vendor ID is 046D. I am currently running Ubuntu Karmic Koala 9.10. According to the Ubuntu Wiki the qc-usb driver should work, but I could not manage to get it to compile. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

Tried that, camera listed, but Cheese couldn't seem to use it. Thanks for the suggestion. Will keep looking.

Hi imvaughan

Have a read of this thread

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1145330

In particular, post#5 by rapha includes a link that apparently helped him compile a working driver.

Good luck.
