Webcam not Detected in /dev
i have this new laptop. but cant find the built-in camera in /dev/.
i tried the ff:
my webcam is being detected correctly as Bus 001 Device 002: ID 5986:0241 Acer, Inc.
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
also i tried:
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.
in other systems, we can
$lsmod | grep video
uvcvideo 45415 0
videodev 26099 1 uvcvideo
v4l1_compat 10806 2 uvcvideo,videodev
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
and this is what im trying to do with my webcam. so that, hopefully, i can access my webcam using IOCTL.
$cat /dev/video0 > test.jpg
thanks in advance.
