Hello i am new interested in Linux,
Recently, I have installed Kubuntu 10.04.
I have a graduation project and I am in need to help really and to people continue with me.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
My big problem is that, initally I have to join my webCam into linux.
It supposed to work out of the box but actually I face a problem.
The cam:
Works only on a specific program which is "guvcview".
Doesn't work in it's all supports resolution it works only in :
    • 176 * 144
    • 160 * 120

Camera information:
Name: FaceCam 312
Brand: Genius
Output: MJPG
Frame rate:
Up to 30fps
Interface: USB
Plug and play. Driveless

"cheese" error:

===========
Quote:
libv4l2: error turning on stream: No space left on devic

"gstreamer-properties" and ""guvcview" error:
=================================
When I try another resolution e.g.: 640 * 480
Quote:

libv4l2: error turning on stream: Device or resource busy

VIDIOC_STREAMON - Unable to start capture: Device or resource busy

Hi,

Welcome to TSF!!

Why can't you use the integrated camera that is in your laptop instead of the external one?

Cheers!

Thank you!
Because the project is working on one of the laboratory PC (have no integrated camera).
Also the same problem of Ubuntu 9.10 (laboratory PC).
Also we need to use a camera support rotation and I can move it.

I have a question:
If the problem is bandwidth problem.. Is that maybe appear because I didn't install Ubuntu in a separated partion (i downloaded it inside windows C:\)?

Hi,

I wouldn't worry about the bandwidth at the moment. I would like you to try a couple of things. I would like you to type webcam in a terminal click enter it loads a cam grabber. If that works you might be in business. If it doesn't it should give you some output that can help us.

Also, try this and see if it works.

click system, preferences
go down the list to multimedia systems selector, start it click video
try v4l and v4l2 click the bottom test button for each 1

Cheers!

Hi,

Okay, I am going to recommend that you follow what they are telling you to do. This way you don't hear the same things twice and I don't have you do something that might mess up something that they had you do. Please come back if you have any other questions.

Cheers!

Sugesstions I didn't understood:
Quote:
  • Have you tried to boot linux without the webcam and to hot plug it, or boot with it, unmount and remove it, then hot plug it?
  • Is there another installation or a live-cd(10.04?)
I can't determine the gspca driver.Case it's a necessary thing.
Q: How is unmount and remove?
Q: What's hot plug?

Done:
Quote:
  • gstreamer-properties testing
  • webcam testing
  • cheese and ekiga testing

Hi,

I am sorry that I haven't keep up with this thread. I honestly don't have that many other suggestions for you. I might recommend that you try talking to some of the people in the #kubuntu IRC channel. I can help you with setting up an IRC client if you don't already have one. People there have much more knowledge than I do.

To connect to IRC channels you need to have a client that will run IRC. I would recommend Xchat. Xchat is in the repositories so installing it is easy. Next you will need to connect to the Freenode network. Kubuntu has a lot of networks that you can join scroll down till you find Freenode.

Once you have the network that you want picked out you will get a screen that asks you to choose a channel, for right now don't choose a channel. Next follow this page to register your username. This will allow you to always be known by that name and it is easier than having to use different usernames each time you log on. Then you will want to type: /join #kubuntu. This will get you to the Kubuntu channel and they can help you more with your issue.

Please feel free to post the link to this thread if they ask you what you have tried that way they know what you have done, and can go from there.

Sorry I can't help you with this my knowledge just isn't great enough.

Cheers!
