debian lenny logitech quickcam chat?

December 26, 2009

Dear lazywebs: My family has all received Logitech quickcam Chat cameras for Xmas (and happy holidays to you!). Ive managed to get the Logitech Quickcam Chat camera to work under various Ubuntu Karmic installs and I know for a fact it works under Windows Vista. I am running Debian Lenny however, and haven’t gotten it to work after installing gspca-source_0.1.00.20-1.all.deb as well as running m-a a-i gspca.

lsusb | grep Logitech
Bus 006 Device 003: ID 046d:092e Logitech, Inc. QuickCam Chat
user@host:~$ dmesg | grep gspca
[113379.415192] gspca: USB GSPCA camera found.(SPCA561A)

[113379.417730] usbcore: registered new interface driver gspca
[113379.417735] gspca: gspca driver 01.00.20 registered

sudo modprobe gspca returns no output. thoughts and thanks in advance?!

    How old is this camera model? Does it really need gspca modules? Have you tried uvcvideo module?

    I also think under karmic it might use uvcvideo. Try using a newer Kernel under Debian Lenny.
