Installing a UVC Photo Scanner

I have just acquired a Maplin “Gadget” slide scanner, which uses uvc format. It comes packaged with Arcsoft MediaImpression software for Windows XP, and works OK under XP.

Naturally, I want it to work under openSuSE (11.1). I have installed luvcview, which seems to grab some kind of image from the device (horizontal zig-zags which move as I move the slide holder in the machine). It shows a frame rate of 2fps.

I would be grateful if anyone could give me any ideas about how to get this device working.

Many thanks in advance
