Hi Michael,

I will give it a try later this week. Thanks very
much. What are the commands to get the driver added. I
have to unpack compile and then put somewhere??


Good morning,

Nothing to do , compile :

./configure (not sure if it is needed)
make install

and the module will be at the right place in folder /lib/modules/'uname'/kernel/driversq/usb/media
and the entries for spca50x will be in file modules.usbmap

So the module wille be loaded at boot !

Take care , your cam should be device /dev/video0
but if you have another video hardware (ie a TV card) it could be /dev/video1 if the
TV module is loaded first. Furthermore it could be different at each boot ! so I'd to
control the loading order of the modules with a boot script.

Take care too, if you recompile your kernel, you'll have to recompile the spca50x module.

Do you have any tips?
Thanks in advance.

I've too a Logitech Clicksmart 510. I was able to
get it working well with driver spca50x.

Have a look at :

You can get the latest drivers and a SpcaGui at the
site of the main maintainer :

and you have a mailing list at
calles [spca50x-devs]

That's all folks
Good luck.
