Hey list,

I'm trying to get the 380 USB 2.0 [email protected] to work, but so far I haven't
had much luck.
I've never tried getting an USB camera to work before, so I'm probably
missing out on RPM packages and whatnot.

When I plug the thing in my laptop it gives me the following in dmesg:
usb 1-5: USB disconnect, address 3
usb 1-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4
usb 1-5: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
usb 1-5: New USB device found, idVendor=0e96, idProduct=c001
usb 1-5: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
usb 1-5: Product: USB2.0 PC Camera
usb 1-5: Manufacturer: APLUX

The output from lsusb is the following:
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0e96:c001 Aplux Communications, Ltd TRUST 380

I've tried running Cheese but the program didn't give me anything. It
just shows me some test-screen (guess that's the default screen).

Since the webcam is pretty old, I thought that there has to be a driver
somewhere that supports it. But I really have no idea which driver it
should be.
Does anyone have any ideas?

Your best bet is to try the gspca driver, as mentioned in the CrystalEye 
thread.  The author of that driver is pretty good at getting it to work with 
a lot of cameras, but this one sounds so closed that I wouldn't hold my 


The good news is that some *very* cheap webcams (I heard of a £5 one, even) 
work with that driver, so it's not worth struggling too much.


Thanks for your advice. I didn't get the spacecam to work, but another cam I had lying around did work with the gspca driver :)
The spacecam is a bit better than my other one, but it'll have to do.
