I've installed the last LTS Ubuntu distribution on my easynote MX-45 laptop and there are at least two devices that don't work properly:

  • Sound Card
  • Webcam

I've tried compiling the last drivers for the webcam:

  • stk11xx-2.1.0

But this is the output when I execute the command:

$ make -f Makefile.standalone  

make -C /lib/modules/3.13.0-29-generic/build SUBDIRS=/home/sarao/Descargas/stk11xx-2.1.0 modules
make[1]: se ingresa al directorio «/usr/src/linux-headers-3.13.0-29-generic»
CC [M]  /home/sarao/Descargas/stk11xx-2.1.0/stk11xx-usb.o
/home/sarao/Descargas/stk11xx-2.1.0/stk11xx-usb.c: In function ‘usb_stk11xx_probe’:
/home/sarao/Descargas/stk11xx-2.1.0/stk11xx-usb.c:793:2: error: implicit declaration of function ‘init_MUTEX’ [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]

cc1: some warnings being treated as errors
make[2]: *** [/home/sarao/Descargas/stk11xx-2.1.0/stk11xx-usb.o] Error 1

make[1]: se sale del directorio «/usr/src/linux-headers-3.13.0-29-generic»
make: *** [driver] Error 2

I already installed the build-essential and the linux-headers.

Try with installing driver packages : sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic xserver-xorg-video-all libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri xserver-xorg-core build-essential –  user224082 Jun 16 '14 at 16:57
I've checked one by one and I've already installed all these packages... Any suggestion? –  user294084 Jun 18 '14 at 11:32
Try with reinstalling them. If the configuration is not correct, then such problems comes. You can reinstall with sudo apt-get --reinstall install [Package name]. Also sudo dpkg-reconfigure [Package Name] useful. –  user224082 Jun 18 '14 at 12:23
Nothing changed, just a few more errors when I start the system. Maybe If I install 12.04.4 LTS is more stable? –  user294084 Jun 20 '14 at 1:15
