    if u try (as root)

    Code:
    fdisk -l
    it will tell you what partitions are connected to your computer, hopefully including the webcam.

    If not, you will need the driver.

    i've got a problem with mine too.... Logitech ClickSmart 510.
    /var/log/messages says:
    Code:
    Aug 26 18:17:36 localhost kernel: usb 1-2: USB disconnect, address 5
    Aug 26 18:17:41 localhost kernel: usb 1-2: new full speed USB device using address 6
    Aug 26 18:17:41 localhost kernel: usb 1-2: new full speed USB device using address 7
    when i disconnect it.
    fdisk -l shows nothing related to the webcam:
    Code:
       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/hda1   *           1        1216     9767488+   7  HPFS/NTFS

    my kernel is: Linux debian 2.6.8-2-386 #1 Thu May 19 17:40:50 JST 2005 i686 GNU/Linux

    i found a driver online....http://spca50x.sourceforge.net/spca50x.php?page=cams

    tar -xvzf 'ed it
    cd'ed into the dir it made and ran "make clean" and "make"
    gave me this: http://pastebin.com/347288
    i asked around in #spca50x on freenode.net they suggested i email the guy that started it...
    i did, waiting for a reply...but, a reply here would be helpful as well....
