Logitech Webcam Device driver for Ubuntu 8.04,8.10,9.04,9.10,10.04

I have Logitech C120 Webcam and the driver for windows is quite good and it is perfectly working fine.

However, if you are trying to find out the driver for the webcam for ubuntu (most of the recent distros), you can execute the following command..

in the shell prompt

# sudo apt-get update

# sudo apt-get install luvcview

once it is installed, execute the command to capture with the camera.

# luvcview

This is tested under 9.04,9.10 and 10.04 also. however you can try with other versions also

UVC means, USB Video Compatibility.

So this driver will be working fine not only with logityech with other products also….
