    Cool ASUS S56C Webcam openSuse 13.1

    Hi all,

    I'm, trying to get my built in Web cam to work.
    Any one here know where to start?

    I search here and on internet of course without any success.
    Maybe I do not search with the right word.

    Best regards
    Mats

    The openSUSE wiki giving guidance wrt webcam setup is here: http://en.opensuse.org/HCL:Web_cameras

    To provide more help on this thread it would be most useful if you could provide output of the command:
    Code:
    lsusb

    In addition to providing the output of the 'lsusb' command, could you also tell us with what applications you base your declaration that the webcam is not working for you?

    I assume the webcam works in MS-Windows and it is switched ON in the BIOS (if there is such a control) ?

    I also assume the Asus S56C is a laptop and the webcam is integrated ? If so, then I can't see your Webcam device there. To me that suggests that openSUSE-13.1 does not detect it.

    You could also try running:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep ideo
    dmesg | grep uvc
    dmesg | grep UVC
    to see if any of those give an error message, but given no detection by 'lsusb' this does not look very promising in my current view.

    You may need to write a bug report - although I am not clear now as to where the best place to write the bug report may be.

    Glad to read it works.

    Out of curiosity, exactly WHAT did you upgrade ? Do you mean you were not running openSUSE-13.1 ?

    Does the command 'lsusb' now show the webcam ? Is this a 'uvc' compatible webcam (ie the commands below indicate a UVC webcam) ?
    Code:
    dmesg | grep ideo 
    dmesg | grep uvc 
    dmesg | grep UVC

    Thanks! I confess the name 'IMC Networks' put me off track.

    I note now a thread with the ID 13d3:5165 listed by a user: http://h-node.org/notebooks/view/en/806/X501A-XX025V as a webcam.

    And I see now this has been previously reported as UVC compatible, even though under http://www.ideasonboard.org/uvc/#devices it is not listed.

    In particular I note this thread:
    http://sourceforge.net/p/linux-uvc/m...sage/30669230/ where thou reported , the information never appears to have made it to the compatibility list.

    The following command would also prove uvc compatibility
    Code:
    lsusb -d 13d3:5165 -v | grep "14 Video"
    although given the OP reports this works, and the above thread I noted, such is a mute point.

    It may be worth while thou, for a user with this camera, to report again the functionality to the UVC mailing list (with subscription being required first) , so that the master UVC compatibility list could be updated.

    This is my webcam:
    Code:
    Bus 002 Device 002: ID 13d3:5130 IMC Networks
    13d3:5130 USB 2.0 Camera (Asus K40AE, K50IE and K52JT notebooks) Sonix Technology
    http://www.ideasonboard.org/uvc/

    This camera module is known to be mounted upside-down in some notebooks. Applications that use the libv4l library should display the video correctly, as libv4l detects upside-down cameras and rotates the image automatically. See Hans de Goede's post on the linux-uvc-devel mailing list for more information. For applications that don't use libv4l, try holding your computer upside-down.
    But this webcam isn´t mounted upside-down, it is working with v4l.
