So I have a Logitech Webcam Pro 9000 under 10.04 and I am trying to get it to work with Motion.
Here is the
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 001 Device 008: ID 046d:0809 Logitech, Inc. Bus 001 Device 005: ID 15a9:0004 Bus 001 Device 004: ID 058f:6362 Alcor Micro Corp. Hi-Speed 21-in-1 Flash Card Reader/Writer (Internal/External) Bus 001 Device 002: ID 1058:0910 Western Digital Technologies, Inc. Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
When I run Motion as user "motion" it doesn't work and I keep getting a
Failed to open video device /dev/video0 error. However, when I run it as root, there is no problem and everything works fine.
I have a laptop running the same setup for motion and everything seems to work fine e.g. all the permissions on the files and the device are the same.
