Re: Installing QuickCam Pro 5000 on Linux

In the "support" feature, then why is there even an option to put "Linux" as an operating system if LogiTech does not even support it? Just leave it out so people get the message that it's not support in LogiTech

I'm not sure what you mean by 'In the "support" feature'...

Re: Installing QuickCam Pro 5000 on Linux

When you write an e-mail to tech support, you have to include product information as well as the operating system you use. If they don't support Linux, why do they even bother to include it in the list of supported operating systems for support?

Re: Installing QuickCam Pro 5000 on Linux

You'll have to ask Tech Support that question directly.
 
Does it say supported...or just Operating System?

Re: Installing QuickCam Pro 5000 on Linux

If you look under Sytem Requirements for Logitech QuickCam 5000 page it says :
"Windows® 2000, XP"

Just because its a drop down on their support email doesn't necessarily mean they support it from a device POV. Perhaps they list Linux as their keyboards may work on Linux, or perhaps theres a video issue or perhaps they just want to gather some info on the problem as a whole - playing videos on Linux etc.

Re: Installing QuickCam Pro 5000 on Linux

If you have a "2006" model, you need the uvcvideo module, then any video 4 linux 2 app should work.

The "2006 model has a deviceID of 046d:08ce

From a command prompt type

cat /proc/bus/usb/devices | grep |Vendor

if you see a line that says:

Vendor=046d ProdID=08ce

you have the 2006 model.

I use Ubuntu and can't give you debian spefic advice but this looks like it will help you:
