I was looking to iphone and i was surprised the quality of such tiny camera.
Is there any alternative camera for my laptop to have similar or much better then the one in iphone? So that i can use it from my laptop, but have very sharp HD quality with maximum megapixel + highest frame per second.
I am new to Linux, and have started using Ubuntu 9.10. everything seem to be in place except for the Web Cam. i think it is not being identified by my OS. i have tried Ekiga, but still of no use. i am using a Compaq Laptop with an inbuilt camera.
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.
I'm looking to capture my hdv footage from a canon hv20 camera onto a laptop running Ubuntu 9.10. No clue where to find software to do this capture.Hdvsplit is a windows only free program that does this but other than that not sure.
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.
I installed Linux 6, configured the network during the install with a static IP and when I do an ifconfig command it doesn't show an IP Address. Can't get out to the Internet because I don't think I have an IP/Address. I restarted network, went into preferences-network connections and everything looks fine, ran system-config-network and everything looks fine. When I do an ipup ifcfg-eth0 and get the message "Connection activation failed: Device not managed by NetworkManager". Is there an option I failed to load at install or I need to install now?
I'm running Fedora 14 and set the screensaver (in System>Preferences on the Gnome GUI) to activate after the computer is idle for 30 minutes. After the screensaver is activated, and a press a key or the mouse, the screen is back to normal -- no problem.After the screensaver has been activated once, however, it comes back on very quickly -- usually in 2 or 3 minutes if the computer is idle. The only way I have found to correct this (and set activation back at 30 minutes again) is to log out and back in again.How can I correct this, and automatically set screensaver activation back at 30 minutes each time the normal screen is reactivated?
I'm running KDE, with 11.2 32-Bit. At first, my screen saver worked just fine, coming on after 130 min, being just long enough to watch a movie. Since changing the screen saver, but not the duration before activation my screen saver comes on every 20 min. I have tried changing and saving settings in YaST and going back to the original choice of screensaver, neither of which have worked.
I have a question, I have a Windows 7 CD that I had used on a computer, and it is my understanding that you can use RemoveWAT to remove the need for a product activation key, so my question is, will running RemoveWAT on a Windows 7 Boot CD allow me to then install Windows 7 on Ubuntu using virtual box?
I'm running Ubuntu 10.4 Lucid Lynx and I am setting up gadmin-Proftpd and when I try and activate it. I get the following message and am really unsure where to go from here:
- notice: unable to bind to Unix domain socket at '/var/run/proftpd/test.sock': No such file or directory - notice: unable to listen to local socket: Operation not permitted - Fatal: TLSRSACertificateFile: '/etc/gadmin-proftpd/certs/cert.pem' does not exist on line 56 of '/etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf'
Does anyone know a way to force a driver activation, or driver install from the command line in recovery mode?Even better, is there a way to force a driver installation from the "(initramfs)" prompt?We're having problems installing the drivers for a PNY GeForce FX 5200 256MB 128-bit DDR PCI Video Card. It goes straight to the "(initramfs)" prompt with the new card installed and, without the card installed it won't allow any drivers to be activated via Administration>Hardware drivers.
Sorry for not introducing myselfin the proper forum; actually, as I must ask my emergency question now, I'll intriduce my lovable self soon. You see, I have only a few minutes left on this Library Computer, as it took me1/2 an hour to realize that this is the BEST!! site for me. Or so this is my present understanding eh. Ohhh, ok, ok, now you know. I don't know why all the hosers say I'm slow just because I'm a Canadian eh. I mean, I have other reasons too. Anywhere from head traumas, to my High school days when I learnt how to smoke things that we never smoked at the Private Christian School I went to. No NO, I'm 40 now, and even though my Doctor suggested for me to smoke Legalized Marijuana for pain, I told him no way Dr ..., too paronoid! Then the anti went up, so I split and got myself a new Doctor.
PLEASE help me anyone that can! I just spent most of my few minutes trying to introduce my Canadian humor eh. And yes it's true. Humor may not be the original way going back to the early Brits. But we have our reasons. It just looks so much better.
I have Bonobo-activation-Server in my precious, well it was a precious dual system that a complete Newbie like me with the only skills of one with a decade of Windows. Plus remember the Canadian issue eh. I need to somehow dissconnect bonobo from my Ubuntu system. Even using my 8.10 which I now have to use, in my CD DRive, they still are hooked up to me, using my memory, partitions, drives, stealing my root.
I have a Swann DVR4-2500 Security DVR with a Seagate SV series 500 Gig hard drive. I'm trying to offload the camera footage. The hard drive is formatted with Linux but dont know what kind. Would any type be able to help?
This laptop that I am trying to get Debian 5 working on is occasionally locking up during boot at "Activating Swap..." WTF could cause such a bizarre thing? The swap partition is just empty space. Activating must be nothing more than confirming it exists and mounting it.
Running HP DV9000 with Nvidia 8600 card. Just installed Lucid Beta 1. Live CD boots fine. Can't remember, but I believe initial install had login problems. So, I edited xorg.conf to use "nv" driver. Then, login screen worked fine. Activated latest Nvidia driver (v195.36.15) and now login screen is garbled, possibly frozen. I can't CTRL+ALT+F1. No mouse, no keyboard as far as I can tell. Have to hold power button to shutdown
after a brand new 10.0.4-installation on my x86, the system proposes me to activate the nvidia-drivers for my gc - trying this, I get the following bug report:SystemError: Failed to lock /var/cache/apt/archives/lockWhat to do now?
I have a big issue that i can understand (and i didn't find any answers) When i boot, i only have the fullscreen console (tty1 to tty6), which ask me to login.If a try a gedit it says that there is no display. Startx doesn't work neither.
Before this, i tried to update from 10.04 to 10.10, but I had some issues with the update manager. On looked on google for solutions and I tried a couple of those: I updated my source list with maverick ppa, I removed the nvida driver
I'm using fedora 15 on my HP G42 laptop, I didn't install any particular packages for access web camera.Does the default OS support access web camera or Do I need to install any software package for that?
installed UBUNTU Linux to my laptop, but my webcamera and mic not working in UBUNTU.checked sound settings, is all unmute. I downloaded GNOME Alsa MIxer, PulseAudio etc but nothing happened...I read other topics, someone said to type that commands (may be helpful to understand any problem i have -?-) "cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec"--> Codec: Realtek ALC275"cat /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base" --> cat /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base: No such file or directory
I have built 11.2 on several laptops and knetwork manager startup for wireless is not consistent. I can't figure it out. Sometimes the options "Create Network Connection" and "enable wireless" are greyed out. Other times they are fine. What is the secret to getting the options to appear in my window tray all the time? I always select knetwork manager as the default when I do a clean build.
My Karmic installation has two problems regarding screen saver activation:
1) VLC is set to deactivate the screen saver during playback, but the screen saver activates anyway.
2) Sometimes, when NOT running VLC, the screen saver doesn't activate itself at all. I've set it to 5 minutes, but after 5 minutes of inactivity, nothing happens. This ALWAYS occurs while running a java web applet, and SOMETIMES also occurs when no software is running at all.
I've googled this to death, but can't find any information relevant to this problem.
