OpenSUSE Hardware :: Microsoft Webcam VX3000: Poor Video - Green Screen With Some Colour-full Dots At Top

Jul 8, 2010

My VX3000 webcam seems to be recognized by skype and kopete, however the image is terrible (green screen with some colour-ful dots at the top).

Here is some output that might shed some light on the issue:

This is what I have installed


Which seems to be received well on startup:


However the output at runtime of Kopete might give a hint to the problem:

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Microsoft Webcam VX3000 - Microphone Not Working ?

Jul 14, 2010

After having fixed the video on my webcam to use it with Skype I want to use the microphone as well...

Skype offers two microphones that seem to be related to the USB webcam. I have tried both of them and with different settings in kmix where I see a tab called "usb camera" with a microphone slider and a tick box. There is also an option to use "audio gain control". no success with all possible combinations.

Then I tried to use the microphone with a small software called "flrec", no success either.

Fedora Hardware :: Lifecam Vx3000 Picture But No Sound?

Feb 25, 2010

I have a MS Lifecam Vxx3000. I have managed to get the video to work in SKYPE, but I have to use an external mic. I have checked a lot of places, but could not find anything that works. PulseAudio Volume Control recognizes it, but I cannot get any sound out. I was using Audacity to test this. I can get my external mic to work in Audacity. When I change the options in Audacity and pick the webcam mic as input, I get no sound input.

Ubuntu :: Microsoft VX5000 Webcam Does Not Work ?

Jan 4, 2011

I plugged my Microsoft VX5000 Lifecam into my Ubuntu 10.10 system and expected it to fire up and work like a charm. Well I had high hopes for the new year but I see it's not going to be easy. I tried to use Skype and Camorama. It just does not see the web cam. When I plug it in, I see the little blue light come on for a second then go off.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Microsoft LifeCam Cinema H5D-00001 Brightness Adjustment?

Aug 16, 2010

I've seen several posts about adjusting the brightness on webcams within Ubuntu going through /sys/module/... /parameters/ however, I need directions for the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema specifically. It runs well with Skype but during the day the image is way too bright so I look like a ghost on cam. I'm running with UBUNTU 10.04 LTS *Lucid Lynx* on a DELL D620 laptop.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Lifecam VX-3000 With Skype - Set Of Commands That Allow To Use My Webcam ?

Aug 11, 2011

Regarding the use of lifecam VX-3000 with skype. In this thread Microsoft lifecam Vx-3000 webcam - HELP

I found a set of commands that allow me to use my webcam within skype by running the following Code:

Unfortunately, it looks like I need to type in these lines every time I restart skype. Is there a way to automate the process, so that when I start my computer it executes the code before starting skype?

What this code does? I find it difficult to run commands without knowing what they do. Do you have to be a programmer to know about these commands or should everyone who uses suse know about that.

I switched from windows not long ago.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Webcam In Skype - The Green Light Comes On By The Built In It?

Mar 19, 2011

I have a ASUS K52J.I tried cheese.It was initially upside down. Then I tried Video for linux device preferences.When I checked vertival flip, that fixed cheese. But it was still upside down in skype.I tried downloading skype from the webpage, and from synaptic.I tried running skype in sudo.I tried: export LIBV4LCONTROL_FLAGS=3 && L

D_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype but i get: ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l1compat.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored

and I tried: export LIBV4LCONTROL_FLAGS=3 && LD_PRELOAD=/usr/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype
ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/libv4l/v4l1compat.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.I tried this:

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype
When skype loads up, i go to the options>video>test. The green light comes on by the built in webcam, then i get a segmentation fault and skype crashes: /usr/local/bin/skype: line 2:4055 Segmentation fault LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so /usr/bin/skype

Then I tried:LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so then running skype and i got the segmentation fault again.I may have missed some threads on this but everyone else seemed to be thanking someone for fixing their problem by now.Finally I tried threating my computer with a Windows installation. But I think both me and the computer knew it was a hollow threat,

OpenSUSE Hardware :: IHome Webcam - 11.3 - Cheese Freezes And WXcam Comes Up With A Green Screen With No Video

Jul 27, 2010

OpenSUSE seems to have an issue picking up and working with my newer webcam. This webcam does work with linux, it works with Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid and Linux Mint 9 Isadora but openSUSE 11.3 doesnt seem to like it. Information about webcam drivers seems to be missing now, I tried the drivers repo but no luck. Cheese freezes and WXcam comes up with a green screen with no video. This is a gateway product by my understanding but it seems to be linux compatible, especially with the Linux 2.6.34 kernel that both Ubuntu and openSUSE use right now. But for some reason its not quite clicking with openSUSE 11.3

Red Hat / Fedora :: Transferring Files To Microsoft Server - Will SCP Work?

Jan 22, 2010

I am running a linux server and am familiar with scp somewhat, and have used it successfully in the past. But that was talking to another linux server. Thing is, here I need to talk with a Windows server. How do I do that. In addition, their server may require a VPN, which seems to add another layer of complexity.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Webcam Shows Just Black Screen In Lucid/

Jun 11, 2010

I have a Logitech Quickcam Chat webcam (USB ID 046d:092c) that's worked with my Ubuntu with minimal problems (just some nVidia driver crap) for ages now. I'm not using nVidia anymore (Intel now), but since my fresh install of Lucid, my webcam doesn't seem to capture anything. It is detected by lsusb, but when I open Cheese, the picture is just black. Skype doesn't give me any video at all, not even that annoying static or green lines. Clicking the Test button in my Skype Options undedoesn't do anything;double-clicking it gives me a full-screen grey screen - pressing Escape takes me back to the preferences window. After I get the grey full screen and press Escape, the Test button is gone until I close the Options window and open it up again.Going into gstreamer-properties and testing v4l2 (under Video -> Default Input) just shows me the 'Testing ... Click Ok to finish' window for ages until I close it - no video appears or anything and I'm not entirely sure what I'm supposed to be seeing. Testing with the 'Test Input' option does give me the coloured lines and static. Testing v4l seems to make it crash, but no error comes up in the terminal I'm running it from.lsusb output:

Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 002: ID 046d:092c Logitech, Inc. QuickCam Chat

Fedora :: Webcam Does Not Work - Xawtv Package Error

Jun 18, 2010

I have a standard Fedora 13 system where it is runnign fine, there it uses the uvcvideo kernel module and gives me a picture in resolution 640x480. Then I have a second system, based on Fedora 8, stripped down to a minimum size (it is working as headless system) and with a self-made kernel that has compiled in i2c-core, v4l1, v4l2 and uvcvideo. There the webcam does not work, as soon as I try to access it with "webcam" of xawtv package I get an error


Beside of that v4l-info tells me, that it can handle a resolution of 176x144 only (instead of 640x480). Beside the difference of the resolution the output of v4l-info is identical on both systems.

Ubuntu :: How Well Does Microsoft Office 2007 Work Under WINE

Jan 21, 2010

how well does Microsoft Office 2007 work under WINE? My mother is a school teacher for younger children, so she really only needs Microsoft Office 2007 and a browser. For the life of me, I've never met anyone that gets more viruses and problems with her computer. So I'm wondering if I can switch her over to Linux and use Microsoft Office 2007 in WINE. OpenOffice isn't a possibility, I'm already pushing it asking her to learn how to use Linux. (I know it isn't hard, I use it myself, but she will fight to the death about using Microsoft Office) So how's Office in WINE?

Red Hat / Fedora :: No Display - Monitor Flashes Green

Feb 7, 2011

I have CentOS 5.5 installed and I'm having the problem of no display, though everything is working perfectly besides that. When I don't use the mouse for a while, the monitor flashes green, but then when I do finally move the mouse, the monitor turns solid green, just that no display is seen. How the situation came about is as follows. The display was working perfectly. I was trying to fix a friend's machine, so I unplugged the VGA cable from the back of the monitor (so that I can hook up the monitor to my friend's machine). Afterwards, when I re-plugged in the VGA cable from my linux machine to the monitor, I had no display.

Also, note that the machine is working perfectly. When I reboot, it boots up completely (I don't need to login as I turned this off) so I can ssh into it from another machine on my network. Another interesting point is that this linux machine is currently using a cheap graphics card and this is what the VGA cable is attached to on the back of the tower. However, the motherboard does have built-in graphics card, and I also tried hooking up the VGA cable to that... still no display. I should also mention that I tried testing the monitor by hooking it up to a laptop as an external monitor and it worked nicely. So the monitor is, in fact, working.

Fedora Hardware :: Wetern Digital Caviar Green HDD?

Oct 6, 2010

I'm setting up a new Linux box at home and going for a Mini-ITX. Of course my main choice of distro is Fedora 13. The site I buy computer parts from have discounts on Western digital caviar green 2TB drive, but read that it doesn't work good with Linux? Made a search here and seems to be some workaround to get it to perform better, but mostly people seem to suffer from using a Western digital caviar* on any Linux distro except Ubuntu 10.04.

The drive I've been looking at is WESTERN DIGITAL CAVIAR GREEN 2TB SATA/300 64MB. Have the Linux kernel made a fix for this drive or should I go for another brand? They also sell Hitachi, Samsung and Seagate on the site and so far SAMSUNG SPINPOINT F3 1TB SATA/300 7200RPM 32MB seems good. Also read Seagate baracuda discs are good.
