SUSE :: Webcam Not Working With Open 11.3

Aug 3, 2010

Few months ago I had updated my OpenSuse 11.2 to new kernel but I broke it so never got to fix it. Now I've upgraded it to 11.3 and its working really well. Really happy with the KDE interface. Not missing Windows 7 at all (dual booting). I've got almost everything working and in fact got a lot more apps than Windows. For example 2 or 3 different versions of MSN Messenger!

I've got couple of minor issues. Firstly, my Logitech Webcam isn't getting detected by OpenSuse. When I open up the Cheese app it doesn't detect any cam.

Secondly, is there a Yahoo Messenger available for Linux? I've got some family/friends who use MSN and others Yahoo. I need webcam functionality in Yahoo Messenger.

SUSE / Novell :: Mplayerplug-in Not Working In Open 11.2

Aug 23, 2010

Just installed opensuse 11.2 (64-bit version) and I have a problem with the Mplayer browser plugin. Basically it comes up OK, I get the MPlayer plugin splash screen and controls exactly as expected, it downloads the media successfully (or at least looks like it does) but then doesn't play, it just reports "Stopped".

Mplayer itself works fine, it's just the browser that doesn't.

System info:

OpenSuse 11.2 (64-bit)
MozillaFirefox 3.5.11-0.1.1-x86_64
mplayer (from packman repo)
mplayerplug-in (from packman repo)

OpenSUSE Install :: Open Suse 11.3 Along With Win 2008 R2 OS - Error "Win2008 R2 Is Not Supported In Open Suse Installer"

Mar 6, 2011

I am trying to Install Open Suse 11.3 (burned as an ISO DVD) along with existing Win 2008 R2 OS. When I try to boot from the DVD it just logs in to Win2008 though boot from CD/DVD is enabled in the boot sequence. So i tried to mount the ISO and run from Windows ! BUT I get an error before installation starts telling that Win2008 R2 is not supported in open suse installer! Is there anything I can do to overcome this and install/retain both OS? In fact I am even trying to c hange my win2008 from R2 to Enterprise to see if I can overcome the problem!

SUSE :: Unable To Use MS VX-3000 Webcam With 11.2

Jun 2, 2010

I have installed the gspca2 driver for my webcam, but in kopete, I still get only a wierd multi colored/scrambled thick line across the top of the webcam screen and the rest remains blank. This is in Kopete.In Kopete, under video, under device, under input, it shows "sonixj" and the device is "USB camera". I know the webcam works in Win7/Vista/XP, but I am trying to get away from using those OSs.

I had tried the 1 click SuSE install of the gspca2 driver but it wouldn't complete the install. Doing it in YaST directly seemed to work but I still get the same bad screen when using the webcam, which has it's LED light up.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Get A Logitech Webcam Pro 9000 To Work With SUSE 11.2 Installation?

Dec 6, 2010

I am trying to get a Logitech Webcam (not Quickcam) Pro 9000 to work with my SUSE 11.2 installation (specifically trying to get it to work with Skype 2.1). I am using the KDE environment. I've been reading the many posts and seem to be getting the point that I need to install the UVC driver from the webcam driver repo. However, the link I found to the repo seems to be for SUSE 11.1...?

Anyway, here is what I have done so far:I ran the following commands and got the following output:

localhost:~ # lsusb
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 046d:0809 Logitech, Inc.

Ubuntu :: How To Get Webcam Working

Do I need to enable anything? It doesn't seem to be showing video if I open skype, although it does detect that I have something on /dev/video0, and lsusb gives:Bus 001 Device 007: ID 0ac8:332d Z-Star Microelectronics Corp.

Ubuntu :: Webcam Not Working In 10.04 LTS ?

Jul 29, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS one week ago without any problems on my Packard Bell EasyNote MX67-P-023 notebook.

Everything works fine except my webcam "USB 2.0 Camera"

lsusb: Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0402:5602 ALi Corp. Video Camera Controller

In programs like aMsn, Emesene, or Cheese it's recognized as "USB 2.0 Camera"

For example(I'm translating menus from italian) in aMSN->preferences->Other->Audio Video:
- select device box: "v4l2: USB 2.0 Camera"
- select channel box:" ALi m5602"
- and in the video box where image should appear: "unable capture from device"

In the other programs it shows a completely blank screen, or sometimes a blank screen with some strange uncomprensible white-grey stripes.

Debian :: Webcam Not Working Properly.

May 15, 2011

My computer has been running well for a couple of years with Ubuntu and the Gnome desktop. I use a very cheap webcam from PCWorld PC Line 1.3 Mega Pixels with Cheese and Skype which worked on Ubuntu. The new Ubuntu Unity desktop seems most unintuitive and reading that Ubuntu may not include Gnome for the next release is my reason to make the change to Debian. I am aware Ubuntu is a Debian derivative.

I have installed Debian Squeeze and everything is working properly apart from the webcam. When I open Cheese the webcam works but very slowly although it will not capture video. When I open Cheese > Preferences, I see the Device listed as USB 2.0 Camera (/dev/video0) but greyed out. When I open Skype > Options > Video I see the same greyed out listing but no image appears in the test area.
