Linux and Creative Live! Cam Optia AF – no joy with Fedora 8

blog

creative-live-cam-optia-af-small.jpgSaint Klaus brought me this sophisticated webcam: Creative Live! Cam Optia AF. I tested it in the Windows XP partition of my computer and it works fine. The problem is that I hardly boot Windows and, when I do, it is depressing in an indefinite way, so I reboot in Linux with any excuse.

The problem with is webcam is that it doesn’t work in Linux or, as far as I know in Fedora 8.

I didn’t expect any support for Linux or drivers for the Creative Live! Cam Optia AF. Unfortunately, I installed the only Linux driver for the webcam, Linux UVC driver , but failed to make it work even though the webcam is recognized:
$ /sbin/lsusb
