qc-usb version 0.6.6 has been released. This release fixes compilation problems on FC6 and other distributions that no longer use <linux/config.h>.
qc-usb version 0.6.4 has been released. This release fixes a spinlock bug and fixes compilation failures on the latest 2.6.x kernels.
Looks that the community of qc-usb users have a reason to celebrate: Kurt
Wall (krwall at sourceforge) volunteered to maintain the driver.
I'm convinced that he has the skills to do it, and no doubt that he will do
a superb job compared to what I have been doing lately.
I'll still stay around and help when I can. Thank you Kurt!
A QuickCam Messenger / Communicate
driver was developed by Christian Magnusson based on qc-usb and
Mathias Kster's work. The newest version
is 0.8 and was available at the original site
http://home.mag.cx/messenger/ until it went down.
A mirror is available here: http://www.ee.oulu.fi/~tuukkat/quickcam/messenger/
qc-usb 0.6.1 is now here. Let me remind you,
that it intends to replace qce-ga; using qce-ga
is not recommended, use qc-usb now!
List of new features is shown by clicking
on "files" in the menu above and then the qc-usb package
name at the version 0.6.1.
Important! New Quickcams do not work the
qce-ga nor with the qc-usb driver! So beware this
if you are purchasing a new camera. A camera almost
definitely works if it has USB VendorId 046d and
ProductId one of 840, 850, or 870. New Quickcams
have ProductId of 910 or 920 and these don't work!
After a long wait, qc-usb has been finally released.
Its initial version is 0.5.0 to denote that it's intended to supersede
qce-ga. However, some compilation problems have been
noticed. If you have problems with 0.5.0, try the CVS version
This is a maintenance release. Issues in compilation or bugs have been
fixed on S.u.S.E. distribution, non-x86 systems, and kernel versions 2.2.22
and 2.4.20. No new features is added, as compared to the previous release.
NOTICE: if you're running linux kernel version 2.4.19 or 2.4.20,
you should apply this patch to the kernel source:

It think it was to release before add new features...
We have added a patch for color control of the camera
whilst it is in operation. The patch can be downloaded
It is applied to the CVS version of the driver
A lot of fixes. Support of different ouput formats.
I have added the support for Photobit sensor.
As I do not have such a camera someone will have to test it. - use cvs to get lastest version of code -
A new release is available for download - Have fun testing -
The camera model number of the quickcam express is not related to its sensor type. As such (apart from pulling apart camera) there is no way of telling what the photo sensor is.
If you have a logitech quickcam express the only way
to tell is to try it.
Jean-frederic clere has manageg in a very short time to put together a working v4l driver for the logitech quick cam the driver is still pre alpha but works. Take a look at
