General :: Sony Laptop Inbuilt Camera Does Not Work With Ubuntu 10.04

Dec 12, 2010

I run Ubuntu 10.04 on a Sony FZ-VGN15C Laptop. On start-up of Ubuntu I get two error messages including '...Video : Failed...' (the message is too fast to be read completely) This might relate to the fact that my built in camera does not work with Skype or Cheese Webcam Booth. The webcam type is VGP-VCC4 by RICOH.

OpenSUSE :: Using Wine To Update Sony NEX Camera Firmware

Oct 3, 2010

Sony currently only supplies its NEX cameras with .exe binary firmware updates. Prior to purchasing the camera, I installed Wine and was able to execute the .exe. Of course, that doesn't guarantee that it'll work. Now, with the camera in hand, I actually tried to update the firmware. It didn't work. I tried using Wine 1.1.28 and 1.3.3 and even the cloned the Wine repository with git and compiling Wine with USB patches I found here: [URL] (Wine git, compile and install found here: USB - The Official Wine Wiki)

With the camera connected, I was able to use "wineconsole cmd" to open a dos shell. In the shell, I was able to see that the D: drive (which I assigned to /media/disk) was correctly accessing the camera as a mass storage device. I can only conclude that USB support works. However, it doesn't appear to work for updating the firmware. The firmware program from Sony searches for about a minute and doesn't find the camera. When I run the firmware updater with Wine, Wine produces these files:


The .dat file looks most likely to be the data I want to dump to the camera, but how? (I've done some research and have read that the data is probably encrypted.)

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Cannot Connect To USB Camera - Sony DSC-W290

Aug 28, 2010

I have a recently upgraded OpenSuse 11.3 system (this problem also appeared to me in OpenSuse 11.2). I have a Sony DSC-W290 camera, and I would like to connect to this camera to get the photos. When I plug the camera to the USB the camera sets itself to "Memory Stick" but nothing happens on the Gnome Linux desktop. I assume that the system should automatically mount the filesystem as it does correctly with other devices (external USB disks and classical memory sticks).

This is the output of the last lines of 'dmesg'

Fedora Hardware :: How To Upload Images From Sony Digital Camera

Oct 14, 2010

I have a Linux-based PC, running Fedora 13, and am attempting to upload photos from my Soncy Cyber-Shot DSC-W310 digital camera. When I insert the CD that came with my camera, I get the following error message:

Archive: /media/SONYPMB/Install.exe
End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on the last disk(s) of this archive.
zipinfo: cannot find zipfile directory in one of /media/SONYPMB/Install.exe or
/media/SONYPMB/, and cannot find /media/SONYPMB/Install.exe.ZIP, period.

I spoke with your tech support person, and he indicated that I could press menu, and go to setting and select PictBridge on the USB option, but that does not work either.

Software :: Inbuilt Mic Doesn't Work - Can Hear Other End - Not From Head Set Of Mic

Apr 11, 2011

I recently installed skype on my rhel 6.0, 64 bit. But the problem is, my mic doesn't work. The sound comes out through the speakers of my Toshiba laptop even though my external mic is plugged into the mic ports. I can hear the other end (from the computer's speakers not from the head set of the mic) but the other end can't hear me. I went to system preference, sound, input and nothing is muted and when i talk through the mic the input level bar doesn't move. I typed arecord --list-devices and lsusb and i got the following results. Can anyone tells me what to do to get my mic works? Note that i use windows 7 on the othe partition and the mic just works fine.

Ubuntu :: 9.10 - Sony F Series Laptop Brightness Control?

Feb 23, 2010

I got a new Sony F series laptop and struggled thru getting the video card to work, the wireless card to work, and the volume to work on 9.10. The brightness controls have stumped me though. The screen is on full bright and the brightness controls (FN+F5 & FN+F6) make the applet display change but the actual screen brightness does not change. I have also tried the brightness applet in the panel and that also has no effect on actual screen brightness.

Ubuntu :: Brightness Not Changing On Sony Vaio Cw Laptop?

Mar 21, 2010

I am having problems with the brightness control on my sony vaio laptop, at virst when i upgraded the driver for the VGA card the whole screen went blank, I had to port a bin file from windows and write my own EDID file to get it to work (nVidia GT 230M), but I am having problems with the brightness, although ubuntu does read the input from the keys (FN+...), the brightness refuses to change, adding the brightness applet to the taskbar does not work either. I really need to be able to change my brightness because the battery usage is off the charts.

Ubuntu Installation :: No Allocated Space On New Sony Vaio Laptop

Feb 24, 2010

I successfully before install Ubuntu on my last laptop along with windows vista and it was rather easy because ubuntu allowed me to partition the disk so simply. However, on my vaio, my whole hard disk is partition and there is no unallocated space. It will not allow me to partition the disk and when I boot up the ubuntu live cd to install, the partitioner doesn't look the same and I'm hesitant to make any changes because I'm afraid I'm going to damage my data. I have a 500GB HDD in which I want to use just 60GB for Ubuntu and the rest for Windows 7. Also, I'm running 64-bit Windows if that matters at all.

OpenSUSE Install :: Installing 11.2 On Old Sony Vaio Laptop?

Feb 3, 2010

I tried to installed OpenSUSE 11.2 "i586" on an older Sony Vaio laptop (model PCG-XG9) with 20 GB HD and 128 or 256 MB RAM. There is no ethernet port, but I have a PCMCIA WLAN card "Cabetron RoamAbout 11 Mbit/s", which should work perfectly with any Linux. The computer had Win98 on it originally (which, of course, after all installation attempts is now destroyed). The problem is that I cannot install to the end at all - no matter what I try:

1) Having the disk as a single FAT partition (made by a Win98 installation CD), it appears that the installer cannot create the correct partitions needed for Linux.

2) Having deleted the DOS partition with FDISK from Windows98 - which is like buying a completely new, unformatted HD from a store. But again, it cannot automatically set the partitions...

Is there a manual / instruction page somewhere how I should partition the disk manually (how to do it, and what sizes are recommended for each partition)?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Samsung R580 Laptop Camera Not Working In 10.10

Nov 7, 2010

I just upgraded from Ubuntu 10.10 (64 bit) from Ubuntu 10.04 (64 bit) on my Samsung R580 laptop [URL] So far all my hardware seems to be working except the laptop's integrated camera. In 10.04 the camera worked and I could use the program "Cheese" to take photos and videos with the camera. In 10.10 I installed Cheese and tried to use my laptop's camera but it didn't work. I installed all the available updates for 10.10 but still the camera wouldn't work. The only information about the camera on the laptop's webpage is that it is a 1.3 MP Web Camera.
