Asked by Daniele Donatelli on 2013-05-08

Hello,

I use the device samsung vp-dx105 as webcam on windows and it works properly while on lubuntu and ubuntu not. (I tried every kind of kernel from 2.6 to 3.8 but the device is not seen except on terminal).

Do you have the latest BIOS?

Well, these are my BIOS details:

-BIOS-
Date : 08/01/2006
Vendor : Phoenix Technologies, LTD (www.phoenix.com)
Version : 6.00 PG
-Board-
Name : I845GV-P195+
Vendor : PCP

Do you think the problem is the BIOS? I also tried my camera on a new notebook and the issue still occours.

I wrote Samsung and they say that it is compatible only with windows. WHY??? Can't I be free to use the OS I like most??

Can you help with this problem?
