1. Check that the webcam is recognized with:
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 045e:00f7 Microsoft Corp. LifeCam VX-1000
2. Download the gspca driver from: linuxtv.org
# wget http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb/archive/tip.tar.gz
3. Navigate to the directory where you saved the driver and extract it:
# tar zxvf v4l [tab]
4 Enter the new directory and the v4l subfolder:
# cd v4l [tab]
# cd v4l
If make returns errors edit the .config created in the same directory and change:
save and run make again.
6 # sudo make install
7. Blacklist the sn9c102 module by editing /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-custom and adding:
Save and reboot.
Your webcam should work now.
I spent a lot of time trying to get the microphone to work, unfortunately with no luck.
