Logitech Quickcam Messenger installation

I’ve a Logitech Quickcam Messenger connected to the hybrid. I followed the steps in a document (Monitor surveillance cameras) and got and a “Generic Analog Camera” in security section, but I can’t see any image from it.
I think that it should have at least a /dev/videoX device, but I have none.
What steps do I have to take in order to finish the webcam installation?
Thanks in advance for any hint.

Hi,

I guess this is USB camera. Basically you need to get it to show as /dev/videoX and then use those settings.

1. need to search, which driver is needed for that camera
2. load kernel module if necessary and make it to load on boot
3. setup motion wrapper - I think I have usb cameras set up in same manner as analog would be - sorry I cannot help you more, cause I can't access my web-admin at the moment (older bug appeared again and it won't let me in)..

I'm using one usb and 3 analog cameras in my sistem.

Let me know if you need further help.

Regards,

Rob.

I'm a pluto noob, so I don't know if there is a driver already built into the system.  

If not, then you might want to look newbielink:http://home.mag.cx/messenger/ [nonactive].

I was able to get this driver working with my Quickcam Messenger on Fedora Core 4.

Good luck,
Larry

I've got it working now!

Here are the major steps:
- apt-get install kernel-sources (to compile the driver)
- Download the above driver and compile it (no prob with Pluto .39)
- Follow the procedures in: newbielink:http://plutohome.com/support/index.php?section=document&docID=264 [nonactive]


Thanks for your help.
