    Default using noname webcam with alcor chip

    I have a webcam that don't work with cheese ("no device found").


    cheese works with an other camera, so it's not the problem. Googl says the cam should work ([all variants] Alcor Micro Corp. webcam just works - Ubuntu Forums), if the usb numbers mean anything.

    dmesg gives this:

    Code:

    thanks for any help!
