  • -=- Logitech QuickCam USB camera driver installer -=-
    Hello! I am the (hopefully) easy-to-use, fully automated
    qc-usb driver installation script.
    At the moment, this is experimental, and if it doesn't work,
    don't hesitate to quit this with Ctrl+C and install the
    driver manually.

    The driver is provided in source code form, so it has to be
    compiled. This should happen automatically, but it does mean
    that there are some steps required before installation.

    You also need to know "root" user password to test and
    install the driver.

    Basically you need only to keep hitting Enter whenever you
    see this prompt: --->. Sometimes you're asked root password.
    Pay special attention to lines beginning with [!].
    It means that some trouble has been detected.

    To most important location is the path to your kernel source
    or headers. This can be guessed, but you can specify it by
    giving it as an argument to this script like this:
            ./quickcam.sh LINUX_DIR=/usr/src/linux

    If you haven't done it yet, now it would be a good moment to
    take a look at file README.

    Next I'm going to check if you have some important programs installed
    and if they and the kernel are of suitable version.

    [!] Kernel compiler and gcc seem to be different versions.
    Instead, they should be the same. If you have many compilers
    installed, you can specify the correct one with command (in bash)
            export CC=kgcc
    before trying to install the driver. Replace kgcc with the command
    required for compiling kernels (kgcc is often used in Red Hat systems).

    The QuickCam driver requires other drivers from kernel.
    I'll now check if those seem to be loaded.
    Press Ctrl+C to quit, Enter to continue --->           

    Modules loaded into the kernel:
    quickcam videodev snd-pcm-oss snd-mixer-oss CDCEther acm printer uhci usbcore snd-intel8x0 snd-ac97-codec snd-pcm snd-timer snd soundcore snd-page-alloc pcmcia_core ntfs ide-scsi agpgart
    [!] The QuickCam driver is already loaded!
    You should first remove the (old?) module by issuing
            rmmod mod_quickcam || rmmod quickcam
    as root, otherwise I will fail to install the new module.
    I will now try to unload it for you automatically,
    if you just give me the root password (Ctrl+D to cancel):
    === Entering root mode ===
    Trying to unload QuickCam driver...
    === Leaving root mode ===

    Next round: let's see if you have a supported QuickCam.
    Please plug in your USB camera before continuing.

    I can find the following probably compatible devices:
    [!] Didn't find compatible cameras.
    If you got message: "Permission denied", it means that
    you simply have too old lsusb, and you can ignore this problem.
    In this case you have to be root to use lsusb, but I won't do that.

    Another round done. Let's now compile the driver, it takes a while.
    This step will also clear old unnecessary files from the directory.

    Now everything should be well and the driver compiled.
    Let's then try actually loading the fresh driver and testing
    if it works.
    Press Ctrl+C to quit, Enter to continue --->                          

    To load the driver, I need to know the root password.
    === Entering root mode ===
    Now I finally will try to load the module.
    If you're unlucky, your computer might crash right now!!!!
    Consider long if you really want to continue.
    Press Ctrl+C to quit, Enter to continue --->   

    ou decided to do it, here we go...
    === Leaving root mode ===
    The driver detected the following supported cameras:
    [!] No cameras detected.
    Try unloading and reloading the driver manually with
            rmmod quickcam; insmod ./quickcam.o debug=-1
    and then checking whether there are any messages indicating
    problems with command
            dmesg
    WARNING: If you press Enter, I'll try to continue anyway,

    definitively it did not find camara... some idea of because no????

    with lsusb show me this:

    my web cam is a logitech: WEB CAM LOGITECH QUICK CAM EXPRESS

    somebdoy can help me????, thanks

     
    • ProductId of your camera is 928 which is
      not supported by the qc-usb driver.
