USB Camera Not Detected

Hi there, 

 

I am using the DE1-SoC with the Linux distribution from the terasic site and am trying to view a camera feed from a USB camera. I have a Logitech C200, which should work out of the box since it uses UVC drivers. I tried bringing up Cheese to view the feed, but it says there is no device! I think it is because there actually is no UVC driver (since the distro is based on Linaro). Can anyone confirm that this is the problem and how to fix it? I just want to use a webcam! 

 

Thanks, 

Mike

Hi Mike,  

Please refer to this article http://www.alterawiki.com/wiki/compiling_u-boot_and_linux_kernel_for_cyclone_v_soc. Basically you will have to activate the camera modules http://nlug.ml1.co.uk/2013/02/gentoo-kernel-3-7-9-webcams-v4l-uvc-video-kernel-config/3965

Regards, 

Pedro
