Hey, I have the Vivitar mini camera. Ubuntu Linux retrieves the photos (and videos, I assume). My problem is that the WEBCAM feature doesn't seem to be active. I have installed several webcam usage software (the Windows one that came with the cam, with Wine, and a few Linux webcam software), and none automatically recognizes the camera as a webcam. Does anyone have an idea about how to get Linux to recognize the camera as a webcam?

Use lsusb as root to obtain the id of your device. It should be something like 0784:xxxx
Then go to http://www.qbik.ch/usb/devices/search_res.php?pattern=0784 to see if you device is supported.

I got these results using the lsusb command:
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 093a:010e Pixart Imaging, Inc. Digital camera, CD302N/Elta [email protected] digi-cam/HE-501A
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
However, I wasn't able to figure out if it was supported. As far as I can tell, it's not. Can you help me find a way out of this?

Phots work great with gphoto2 or for gui gthumb image viewer. I also would like to get the webcam working. ID# 093a:010e
