Camera Driver

Greetings,

I am trying to install Cyberlink Camera on openSUSE 13.1, but I am not able to locate the proper driver. any Idea how / where to get and install the driver / camera?

Thanks

Jamil

Most should just plug in and mount the (usually a SD card that the camera uses)

Does your camera have a SD card?

Thanks,

this is a built-in camera

Like on a laptop you mean?

lsusb -v

Only post the section relating to the device if it finds it

There is nothing related to the camera

Hi
Probably better to post the output from the command then so we can see the usb id info…

the output is too large, and nothing related to Cyberlink Camera, but I am posting the short list of the command output

Are you running in a VM??

Looks like it.

yes, but even on a physical installation, camera in not defined

Hi
Is the uvcvideo driver loaded, this is potentially the one it would use? Is this a new notebook, model?

this is a laptop, Fujitsu - lifebook

I dumped the output above, how to check the uvcvideo is it loaded or not? and then how to load it if not loaded?

Thanks

Hi
With lsmod and then if not present switch to root user;


lsmod|grep uvc

If no output;


su -
modprobe uvcvideo
lsmod|grep uvc
exit

Then check your camera.

here is the output:

uvcvideo               84981  0 
videobuf2_core         44595  1 uvcvideo
videodev              141701  2 uvcvideo,videobuf2_core
videobuf2_vmalloc      13216  1 uvcvideo


and camera still not working !!

Hi
So as far as the system is concerned it’s there. So what application
are you using to verify?

Skype / Facebook / multimedia

Hi
I would imagine Skype and facebook have their own issues. For multimedia, what desktop are you using? I suggest since we have identified the hardware seems to be functioning that you create a new thread in the Multimedia subforum, but first have a browse of this, with respect to installing multimedia codecs;

I wonder if the v4l library needs to be told what to do using LD_PRELOAD

  • I see that with the occasional webcam myself, especialy when using
    Skype.

Maybe something like:

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l2convert.so mplayer tv:// -tv
driver=v4l2:width=640:height=480:outfmt=i420:fps=30

would help with this.
