    Default Logitech Quickcam Activity Light always on

    I have a Logitech Quickcam and th activity light is always on even though I installed the kernel module for it. The camera works absolutely fine, however the light being on all the time is a small annoyance.

    Very funny. Seriously is there any way that I can only let applications take control such as aMSN.

    Your best chance is to contact the driver developers directly. Which driver does it use? If it is the qce-ga, you may find some information on the mailing list: http://qce-ga.sourceforge.net/

    I'm just using the quickcam kernel model in Yast, I'm not sure what the exact package is called, the camera works fine however.

    Check the description in Yast, it says:
    "Logitech USB QuickCam video driver with V4L support. Derived from qce-ga, linux V4L driver for the QuickCam Express and Dexxa QuickCam http://qce-ga.sourceforge.net/"

    So I'd check the URL I gave you earlier.
