Hello,

i have this new laptop. but cant find the built-in camera in /dev/.

i tried the ff:

Code:
$lsusb
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 5986:0241 Acer, Inc
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0bda:8189 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8187B Wireless 802.11g 54Mbps Network Adapter
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
my webcam is being detected correctly as Bus 001 Device 002: ID 5986:0241 Acer, Inc.

also i tried:

Code:
$lsusb -v
and i noticed that it is listed in /dev/bus/usb/001/ as 002. i dont know what this means.
i expected the webcam to be listed in /dev as video0.

other info:

Code:
$lsmod | grep video
uvcvideo               45415  0
videodev               26099  1 uvcvideo

i2c_core               12093  1 videodev
usbcore                91985  5 rtl8187,uvcvideo,ohci_hcd,ehci_hcd
video                  15391  0
output                  1224  1 video
thermal_sys             9782  3 thermal,video,processor
in other systems, we can

Code:
$cat /dev/video0 > test.jpg
and this is what im trying to do with my webcam. so that, hopefully, i can access my webcam using IOCTL.

help please.

thanks in advance.
