    Hey guys, I'm running an x86 box with Ubuntu 6.06 and I'm trying to get my webcam (Logitech QuickCam Chat) to work on it. So far I have installed the easyspca drivers which are suppose to work for that camera, as well as installed Camorama. When I boot Camorama I get:

    "Could not connect to video device (/dev/video0).
    Please check connection."

    It seems everything I need is installed except the video0 file...Any idea on how to install a video0 file?

    Well, I got some new drivers and got it working. Only thing is I can't get it above 176x144 res...grr.

    At least it is working now. If anyone wants to see it, the address is: http://webcam.thatraymond.com

    It's a driveway cam :)

    I emailed the guys doing Camorama and got back a response, now it works!

    I just had to use some -x -y flags from terminal, just type in: camorama -x 320 -y 240 and it works.

    Score.
