after much research ang googling, my web cam is still not recognized.
In the time of Ubuntu 11.04 it was working fine. I did a fresh install of 11.10 and not more web cam.
All the cheese and camera monotor and V4L tests and all failes with "cannot connect to
/dev/video0 or equivalent.
The output of 'lsusb' shows the webcam
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 05a9:2640 OmniVision Technologies, Inc. OV2640 Webcam
What I noticed is that neither
If I re-install the v4l package all the
/dev/video* are created, but no
If I reboot the
/dev/video* are NOT created.
I think the trouble is that the device are not created at boot time.
I have a DELL Inspiron 1525 and until this fresh install the web cam worked fine.
Can somebody help ?
