Question about A4tech PK5
What have you done to make it work in Linux? If you open a terminal and plug in your camera, what do you see when you type in 'dmesg'? If the camera is able to be identified then your kernel has support for it. If it registers it as an unknown USB device, then you will need to recompile your kernel with support for USB webcams and v4l (video for linux). Also, do you have any v4l applications installed? Gnome Meeting is a good client to test to see if a webcam is truely working or not. Also take note of the camera /dev device location so you can configure another client to work with your webcam (such as Yahoo Messanger).
Hope this helps.
