Hello,
I have received a Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX and it works fine in
XP. I'd like to use it in Linux as well but I haven't managed to get it to
work yet. Could someone tell me what I should do next? So far I have
(kubuntu 6.10):

1 - installed package "camstream"
2 - installed package "qc-usb-utils"

When I invoke "lsusb", the camera shows up:

>lsusb
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 046d:08d7 Logitech, Inc.
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

but when I start the camstream application, nothing appears in the
"Device" menu.

There is certainly a step I'm missing here. Help appreciated.
Cheers,

Dan
