I've just got an "SQ chip" camera (Vivitar Vivicam 5B) working from no=20
previous experience on SuSE 9.0, so I'll share my tips with you.
=46rom the mailing list archive it seems there have been substantial=20
improvements in the SQ chip driver in the last months. It is probably worth=
checking out the CVS version of libgphoto2.
RTFM on setting up usb permissions=20
on SuSE 9.0 this chip wasn't included in the default list of usb cameras. S=
there is a good chance its not for Debian either. Following the instruction=
on this page got it working properly. As an alternative - not advised - try=
running gphoto2 as root and see if it can detect the camera - if it can you=
really want to follow these instructions.
That was all I needed to get mine working.=20
