Trust WB-1400T webcam on Ubuntu

posted by Arkham on February 27th, 2008

Download the source here.

Now open a root terminal and create the folder:

mkdir -p /usr/src/modules

Move the package to the new folder and move into it:

mv <gspcav1_package> /usr/src/modules
cd /usr/src/modules

Extract and move into it:

tar -xzvf <gspcav1_package>
cd <gspcav1_folder>

Compile and install:

make && make install

Remove eventually previous version of the module and load the new one:

modprobe -r gspca && modprobe gspca

Plug-in the webcam, and you should see something in dmesg.
Now you can just test with

mplayer tv:// -tv driver=v4l:width=352:height=288:device=/dev/video0

or using programs like xawtv, camorama, amsn or skype. Have fun ;)
