Help me setup my Logitec Quickcam 4000 pro

Hi all , I have been strugling to use my logitec webcam in linux. I followed the wiki which basically says to install the correct driver "PWC" in my case the download a viewer like xawtv or gnomemeeting. Since i am using kernel 2.6.13 i just added myself to the video group.

Now when i start gnomemeeting and clik on the webcam icon, i get only a grey window. xawtv -c /dev/video0 complians "WARNING: Your X-Server has no DGA support.
/dev/video0 [v4l]: no overlay support"

I will appreciate your help please somebody.


A good friend will come and bail you out of jail...BUT a true friend will be sitting next to you saying, "Damn...that was fun!"

Re: Help me setup my Logitec Quickcam 4000 pro

the pwc driver package has a bug, it only installs to the 2.6.12 kernel. if you build the package yourself, it'll work fine

open up a terminal
run su to become root
run abs to download all the PKGBUILD files from arch
cd /var/abs/extra/multimedia/pwc
makepkg - this will download and compile the source code, and create an arch package for you
pacman -A pwc-10.0.7a-2.pkg.tar.gz
modprobe pwc

that should fix your problem!
