    help installing webcam


    I have linux mint 5 elyssa on my computer and I want to install my webcam so that I can use it with skype. The laptop is an alienware aurora m9700 and the webcam is a bisoncam nbpro.

    I can't seem to find the drivers, if there are any.

    my assumption is that the ALi Corp Video Camera controller is the webcam.

    If I enter "bisoncam nbpro 0402 5602 linux driver" in a search engine, I am getting something.

    I don't know if this is useful but such Web search is one way to get to drivers.
    Many such drivers might be proprietary and downloadable from the vendor's Web site.
    Bus Error: Passengers dumped. Hech gap yo'q.
