Subject: [gentoo-user] digital camera - Longshot!
Date: Wed, 18 Jun 2008 17:50:32
1 Dear All,
2 I've just taken delivery of a shiny new microscope with a digital imaging
3 system. Essentially a fancy usb webcam. As usual out of the box there is no
4 Linux support. The model is a Q Imaging Go-3. Their website doesn't mention
5 linux support except in the context of the firewire models.
6 I've done a lsusb and got the following info:
7 Bus 001 Device 003: ID 5354:80e3 [no model or manufacturer info]
9 I've looked through various webcam, gentoo-wiki, and V4L sites to see if those
10 IDs mean anything, but no luck sofar. I even tried googling them. Truth is
11 I'm not sure what they actually refer to.
13 Longshot, has anybody got this camera and got it working.
14 The alternative I suppose is to run it through XP which I'm going to install
15 in a virtual machine later. I've got other software I need to use which I
16 can't persuade Wine to run.
