Default Ekiga - camera

dear All,

when first installing CentOs some 6 months ago, I noticed this strange thing called Ekiga.

Now, some guys at work use Skype and I heard that's owned by Microsoft.
So enter James.

I bought a webcam, actualy 2, to test Ekiga. Logitech Webcam c210.
I saw this url :http://www.ideasonboard.org/uvc/ on this url :http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/HardwareList/Webcams
and in short : I think I have the driver i need --V4L2-- on my Centos6 machine.

To make sure, I installed everything that came up under

# yum search V4L2
with epel testing enabled.

#dmesg | tail -n15 shows :

usb 2-3: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 12
usb 2-3: New USB device found, idVendor=046d, idProduct=0819
usb 2-3: New USB device strings: Mfr=0, Product=0, SerialNumber=2
usb 2-3: SerialNumber: CE6AA1D0
usb 2-3: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device<unnamed> (046d:0819)
input: UVC Camera (046d:0819) as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.7/usb2/2-3/2-3:1.0/input/input13

still in Ekiga i get error message ( translated from Dutch) :

an error occurred with video device UVC Camera (046d:0819)
an error occurred when opening the device
blahblahbla
check access rights or driver.

under System - Preferences I can't find anything configurable ( is that even English ?)

Can anyone help me configure something somewhere or whatever is needed ?

Thanks a million in advance

James

Try installing cheese and see if it can find your camera. That doesn't
directly get ekiga working but it will tell you if Centos 6 actually supports
your camera.
