Webcam Genius iLook 300
I can't use this webcam I just bought (Genius iLook 300) on Linux Mint 7. Programs like Cheese or Skype don't detect it because I have no /dev/video0 (or any /dev/video* at all). When I connect it, its little green light turns on and dmesg shows it as
It also does appear with lsusb command as
[ 711.352011] usb 3-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 3
[ 711.556351] usb 3-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
I've searched a lot, but no tutorials on Google have helped. If you need more data, just ask. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

They have drivers and configuration instructions for almost every webcam that will work with Linux. They mention a number of Genius models.
