Lifetech vc12u

Wed Apr 02, 2014 8:19 pm

Hello there

I'm using a lifetech vc12u and trying to connect to a powered hub ( PiHub ).
The thing is that I can't checkout the camera in the lsusb command although the camera is turned on.

I'm using raspian from noobs.
lusb output.

Code: Select all

Bus 001 Device 002: ID 05e3:0610 Genesys Logic, Inc. 4-port hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 1c4f:0002 SiGma Micro Keyboard TRACER Gamma Ivory
Bus 001 Device 008: ID 0bda:8176 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188CUS 802.11n WLAN Adapter
Can anyone help?

Take a look with the dmesg command when you connect / disconnect your USB webcam.
There may be some kernel messages that tell you why it's not being recognised and why Linux can't load a driver.
