I tried to make my webcam work. I have two webcam and none of them worked.
Either, i'm a unlucky owner of 2 unsupported webcam or something is wrong with my computer. And i pray, it's the later
I read some post without a clear explanation, as far i understood webcam are supported with "video for linux", v4l, wich is included in the kernel. So i tried :
-Reinstalling v4l v4l-utils and reboot.
-I tried various webcam software.
-Installing other package without being sure what they do, as v4l2...
-Found the camera key fn+10 but the light don't lit. It's just detected.
So, Usualy do they work out the box ? Or do i need to install the driver ? if yes, how ?
The first one is an integrated laptop webcam and the second is a usb webcam.
