Greetings folks: Well after about three hours here trying to figure this damn thing out, I'm throwing in the towel for the night! I'm razed, fizzled and spent! For the life of me I can't seem to get my old G.E. Minicam Pro, model # HO98756 to work. I think I've tried everything that my feeble Linux skills can do, I'm at my limit! I've tried "Google searches" & "Yahoo searches" and I even went to General Electrics web site to see if they offer any type of Linux support, surprise, surprise they do not! Oh yeah, they got boat loads of drivers and support for Microsoft Windows, but not Linux distro's. Image of my web camera if needed.... This web cam I'm trying to hook up is fairly old, maybe like 5-6 years old, I know it works, for I was running it just a little over a month ago when I was using Microsoft Windows XP Pro (64bit)! Windows XP surprisingly didn't require it's drivers or software disk, "out of the box" it knew what to do with my web camera, I thought the same would be true with Ubuntu 10.10! I tried things like installing a testing program like "cheese" through the terminal. I even installed several web cam programs through Ubuntu's software support center, each program like "camera monitor" and "guvcview" and "kamoso", they all didn't work. I would like to start using Skype again, but it's pointless to go that route if my web camera will not work! If anyone could please help me here I would be very thankful. Just tell me what I need to do, like access my terminal again and input something, maybe I missed something in the software center, just tell me and I will try it. But please take note, I'm still fairly new to this Ubuntu thing, I'm not familiar with Linux jargon, you might want to speak english to me, like elementary school english, maybe that way I might get it! :blush: Thanks in advance for any help that might come my way! Ps- Note, I'm attempting to use this web cam on my Dell Dimension 5100c, if that info helps.
