    Question Logitech QC Notebook webcam - Not Detected

    I am trying to get my new webcam (Logitch Quickcam Notebook) installed. I tried to test my webcam with XawTV
    # xawtv -c /dev/video0

    but xawtv does not load and outputs the following messages:
    ************************************************** ***
    can't open /dev/video0: No such device
    v4l-conf had some trouble, trying to continue anyway
    v4l2: open /dev/video0: No such device
    v4l2: open /dev/video0: No such device
    v4l: open /dev/video0: No such device
    no video grabber device available
    ************************************************** ****
    My Distro: Suse 10.0 (kernel 2.6.13-15-default)
    My Webcam: The Logitech Notebook quickcam

    My USB webcam just isn't being detected. (USB flashdisk is detected)
    I read that the driver for this webcam is pwc (the philips pwc driver)
    I have installed the pwc module via "modprobe pwc".
    I checked it was loaded with "lsmod" which printed pwc 80916 0

    I have been trying to get this camera working for a long time now. Can someone assist?

    This camera probably uses the uvc driver. Google for 'uvc linux'. I can't be much help, I'm just trying to get this to work for the quickcam 5000.
    good luck!
