Hi Boyce,
Open the terminal and type:
sudo apt-get install gspca
or look in the Synaptic Install Window for gspca, it should load the dependencies automatically. It's in the main repository so it'll definitely be on the list. :)

The modules are:
gspca_main main driver
gspca_xxxx subdriver module with xxxx as follows


The sound will work in Ubuntu but much worse than Xandros:

Hope this helps

My note book camera does not working it is started when my note book was format


Not all the drivers of your computer can be reinstalled back by Windows after doing computer reformat and that's the main reason right now why your camera is not working but no worries installing the proper driver of you camera should do the trick.

All you need to do is to put the CD drivers that comes to your computer when you bought it and eevrything will be back to normal.
1. Put the disc in
2. Read the instruction and click Install

If you already have lost the disc then you can download the Camera driver on asus website. Click HERE to check for ASUS Drivers.


Hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FIXYA.

Hi i have a asus eee 4g notebook give me a webcam drivers. you can reply to my email id pratap_pankhania@yahoo.com


you need to stipulate your operating system is it linux or XP if linux then just do a restore as all the drivers are on a separate disk partition. If you have changed it to XP it is possible that the webcam drivers wont work anyway and you will have to contact the manufacturer

Can a WEbcam be installed


Most 701 models came with a web cam built in.
You can install an external one easily.. just plug it in to the usb port.

Previous poster is wrong... why would you need a Cd drive ?
You could either download the drivers from the webcam maker's website, or simply copy the file from the CD to a SD card with another computer. If you have a home network setup, you could simply copy the files via network file sharing.

If you have the linux version of the EeePC 701, then make sure you buy a compatible webcam that has drivers in linux.

Webcam driver


Some times BIOS disable webcam after updating it.

To enable it do the followings:

1. Restart your Eee PC.
2. Press F2 while booting (to enter BIOS sittings)
3. Go to "advanced" tab (by pressing right arrow)
4. Select "Onboard Device Configuration" (by pressing down arrow)
5. From there you can find if "Onboard Camera" is enabled or not.
6. If not, just press enter to pick "Enabled"

I hope that would help :-)
