Well, where are they? If this was so, he'd have his 3D up a long time ago.
There are certainly here people who are willing to help. But the help
he needs is the kind of help that's hard to get: the "help me find the
magic button to push, that makes everything work" kind of help. Others
already told him what he should do, but that wasn't good enough. Too
much work, see? He just wants to push a button, or two, and get
everything working.
Now, there's nothing wrong with that. It's reasonable to expect things
to work out of the box, but the sad truth of reality is that Linux is
not there yet. You have to either do your homework and buy hardware
that's supported by free software, or be prepared to invest time to
get everything set up and working together, and be prepared for the
possibility that your hardware is not supported at all. But if you
don't pre-qualify your hardware, and it doesn't work, if you expect
someone just to tell you where The Magic Button™ is, that makes
everything working, well, you're in for a big disappointment.
It wasn't so long ago that I was shopping for a webcam here. I asked
here, and got a few references to hardware that works out of the box,
with Linux. I didn't just waltz into Best Buy, bought the first $10
webcam on the shelf, go home, plug it in, then threw a fit because it
didn't work right then and there.
