Many users are switching over to the Ubuntu operating system, which is a type of Linux distribution, in order to work on their computers. Often people will need to use their webcam in order to meet with others online. Fortunately, you can install most webcams onto Ubuntu, and they will work just as well as they do on Windows or Mac systems
Set up the webcam in a place where you will be able to see your face on the screen. Connect the webcam to your computer. Ubuntu should automatically recognize your camera. Test your camera by using Cheese. Open the console and type "Sudo Apt-Get Install Cheese" then press "Enter." Cheese should then install onto your computer. Run Cheese. If your webcam appears and the image comes in fine, your webcam was configured properly. webcam in ubuntu https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Webcam Linux UVC driver and tools http://linux-uvc.berlios.de/
This webcam does not have the drivers available online for download. You can either try contacting UCOM directly and request them for the drivers or I recommend you download driver detective from driverdetective.com and run a scan with your webcam connected. It will search and install a driver for your webcam.
Unlike Windows, Linux will not pop a window notifying about a new USB device, unless it's some kind of file storage. You could check whether or not you USB WEB camera was recognized by your system by opening a terminal window and type: lsusb and press enter. If you device is listed, it's a good sign. The next step is to configuring your Skype Client. While logged in Skype, open Audio Options Settings and select pulseaudio for incoming and outgoing. After saving your options, open Video Options and select your USB Camera as your video device from the scroll down menu. I am not sure what Linux Distribution you have. However, Logitech Cameras are usialy working without any problems on Ubuntu 10 or higher. Hope this helps
Hello Everyone checkout the link bellow. This driver works on many UCom Web cameras as I solved the problem with my UCom web camera. Good Luck. http://www.drivercure.com/driver/driver_vendor.php?id=B5B8C4DF-D0F7-4FC3-B727-4AD5C92599F6
Unfortunately the Veo Advanced Connect ( model 642v ) ( ID 0x0545 : 0810 ) has some proprietary firmware inside on the chip , and so far there has been limited success in making a proper driver for it. You could wait and see if some one does get a driver out for it but I have been looking for 2 years and not had much luck. I would recommend trying to get another web cam that is compatable with linux, or that already has drivers available.
