    openSUSE-11.2 RC1 "should" be no different from "11.1" in this area.

    Information on how to configure web cams under openSUSE is located here. Note with the webcam plugged in, you MUST type "lsusb" to get your vendor and device ID for that webcam.
    HCL/Web Cameras - openSUSE
    Note the repositories will be different, and that might provide some 11.2 RC1 hiccups in setting up the webcam.

    Once you have the web cam configured, in addition to following the wiki suggestions for testing, you could also try some of the fun techniques in this thread: webcam & microphone command line fun .... - openSUSE Forums

    11.2 RC1 is not released, and hence posts like this belong under our Pre-Release/Beta forum area: Pre-Release/Beta - openSUSE Forums

    In future, when posting about software in development that has NOT been release, PLEASE start your new threads there.

    Thankyou.

    Possibly because those utilities do not work with a web cam that uses the uvc driver/kernel-module?

    Did you have any luck with some of the fun ideas proposed in this thread:
    webcam & microphone command line fun .... - openSUSE Forums

    Edit - also you are using 11.2 RC1 which is NOT ready for general release and there could be other reasons why it does not work with those applications you mention. If you do not post your questions in the correct place you will not get the support you need.

    Hello all
    I have the topic:
    howto web cam? Logitech - openSUSE Forums

    I'm trying configure my web cam logitech E1000
    I have the topic in local Tbilisi tech forum too
    ვებკამერა utils -> TBILISIS FORUMI

    this is screen shot cheese util does this:

    when I run this utils from console:
    cheese

    from ./webkam_app.rb:2
    from main.rb:1:in `require'
    from main.rb:1
    then I unpluged web cam andrun command dmesg
    last lines was:
    23798.000567] usb 2-1: USB disconnect, address 2
    [23798.000923] gspca: disconnect complete
    then pluged in:

    Please, did you try the commands (ffmpeg ? mencoder ? ) as described in a previous referenced URL.

    It might help if you answered those questions.

    Also advise what webcam driver you are using? uvc? gspca ? Do NOT install both !! Only install the one that is supported. If your webcam is a 046d:08b9 Logitech QC IM then I see it listed here: GSPCA V4L2 - Webcams which is the list for the gspca v4l2 webcam and you should use a driver for that.

    I copied the wrong line. ... (I'm suffering from a bad head ache).

    I note this webcam is supported by the gspca v4l2 driver http://moinejf.free.fr/webcam.html:
    zc3xx 046d:08af Logitech QuickCam Cool

    Hence IMHO that is the one you should be using.
