This question arises in a lot of variants and so I got a lot of hints how I could solve my issue - but until now nothing really worked for me.

And now I followed this "tutorial" and because the path /dev/video0 is missing. Finally I have to follow the instructions under the section Troubleshooting
- I have to use
hwinfo --usbto find my webcam and the needed Driver Activation Cmd line to continue the process

When I enter
sudo hwinfo --usb I get the following image
