Bug Description

I am new to Linux and can't get my Logitech Quickcam to work.
Do you have any suggestions?

I get this error message when I open Ekiga to test my camera:

"Error while opening video device /dev/video0
There was an error while opening the device. Please check your permissions and make sure that the appropriate driver is loaded."

I have used Synaptic Package Manager to install qc-usb-source, but that hasn't enabled my Logitech Quickcam. Thanks!

Examining the information you have given us, this does not appear to be a bug report so we are closing it and converting it to a question in the support tracker.

You can also give us the exact model of your webcam.

One more thing, the qc-usb-source is a package who give the source code of the module and need to be compiled (it's a bit difficult), it's dedicated to Logitech's QuickCam Express webcam and similar webcams.
