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/
Ubuntu linux will work with just about any device you have. The best way you can check to make sure that the camera and sound system work for sure is to burn Ubuntu to a CD, and when you boot from the CD you will have the option to run Ubuntu from the disc instead of installing it from the disc. This will allow you to try it before you do a full-blown install. Make sure you can connect to the internet though when you do this, so that if you need additional drivers to make the camera or sound system work you can download them.
Please try switching just to Analog Stereo Duplex mode only. When you do this, the linux kernel will only load the ALSA(Advanced Linux Sound Architecture) drivers for the Audio Device, which works in all cases.
If that fails, go to System>Preferences>Main Menu and enable the Multimedia System Selection menu.When enabled, select ALSA Mixer default device ONLY.
Have a great day ahead. All the best.
UBUNTU is a linux open source OS. Chances are your camera doesnt have a Linux driver and wasnt designed to operate under Linux. The website http://www.ubuntu.com/support/communityis the user support community for UBUNTU.. I would post your question there for assistance from someone with a similar model for your laptop. There is also a selection for real time chat support from other UBUNTU users. I have checked DELL website under your unit and it was made to run the Windows XP system so there are no Linux drivers available directly from Dell.
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
Hello my friend thus your Grubber still functioning? If still works then try to access your XP by selecting Xp in your grubber. Or if you can't access your XP files within the Linux you need to select and open first the XP platform. If you can't find the XP loader or platform or it doesn't starts the XP then it is possible that your XP is overwrite by your Linux platform or some error in writing the linux installation to your XP platform. Will if that is happening right now the only way to regenerate your Xp is to reinstall your XP then after you reinstall it need also to reinstall your Linux otherwise after reinstalling Xp it will overwrite your Linux system will lost forever.
Hope this solution helps your pronblem. If you need more assistance you can reply to this post. Thank you
Apparently this bug has been fixed already, you can apply patch if you're advanced user or just simply update to newer Ubuntu (e.g. new 9.04, out yesterday). More info here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/309512
It has the latest mouse driver (logitech setpoint 4.0). Before installing Ubuntu the setup worked w/ SUSE/XP using GRUB dual boot. After installing Ubuntu XP does not see the usb mouse. Even Logitech setpoint does not have the mouse setup/configuration option. It appears that at boot it does not recognize the mouse or disables it. The BIOS has the usb keyboard and mouse enabled. Currently, I have two mices one for xp and either mouse will work under Ubuntu.
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.
