http://ubuntuforums.org – I know there have been a lot of posts about this driver but i've looked through them and unless i've missed something there is no existing solution to my problem. I've tried following other ppls instructions but had no luck. Can anyone pls help me get my webcam working? I'm using 9.10 In ekiga or in skype or in camorama or in cheese or in vlc and even xawtv i get no joy. Here is the output of lsusb: Code: Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0402:5602 ALi Corp.

I've heard of others saying with karmic koala it works out of the box. Cheers for any help you can give :) Marc (Hardware)
