Genius facecam 310 installation

Asked by Pablo on 2011-10-25

Hi all,

I got a USB Genius facecam 310 webcam and I wanted to install it on Ubuntu 11.10
When I bought it, it said that supports Linux however the driver was not included. Even tough I have been surfing the net I was unable to find a tutorial on how to install this camera under Linux.

If someone can help me on this will be great.

Thank you in advance for your time.

Regards
Pablo

Dear actionparsnip,

Thanks for responding. I can consider this issue solved now since as soon as I opened the applications that use the webcam, Skype, aMSN etc the system automatically recognized the webcam and used it without any problems.

Reading additional material from the manufacturer Genius I found that no installation is required for this camera in Linux since the system recognizes automatically once the application is launched.

Thank you for looking into this.

Regards
