This was the last webcam I tried to get going and failed.  That's not to say
that it won't work now (or maybe in 11.10) as I gather a lot of work has
been done since then.  It is listed here


as a non-UVC webcam that needs the gspca driver, which I think the wiki
article is about, but when I tried installing it I did not have much

My advice remains: find a UVC compliant webcam.
