I know this makes me sound like an idiot, but I really want to make it work, and I really don’t know as you are already screaming in the background what I am doing. I do have wine I did buy a webcam that was said to work “out of the box” Logitech quickcam plus – which shows in cheese but only in very dark shadows , but it at least says there is camera – I have 8 other web cams I have tried – no luck, and none in skype. Sorry no make install target for now. There is a linux version for skype. I am using Ubuntu 9.

I am using Ubuntu 9. I can’t get skype to work on Fedora 8. I had posted a question a couple of weeks ago on this question, and it listed all the commands, lists, and programs that I installed, but I can’t find that post, or all those details I put anywhere on this forum.

Getting Skype to work on Slackware To compile ca,era type “make” after that you can find the compiled libraries and wrappers under the lib dir, public headers are under the include dir. So, I clicked on makefile: I am reading the posts – and I have no clue.


All times are GMT Spca51 shows a picture but extremely dark even when pointed outside in the bright sunlight – the camera works fine on another computer with xp.

Packages couldn’t find it either.

No one seems to give clear commands what to type or what site to go to, its camerz try this lsusb grep QuickCam – and I type that then I get the same line he got in his post which is just a read of the properties Bus Device BB code is On. The QuickCam Express Plus will list it is the only one that does but it is all static.
