Main purpose is to be able to vid confer with my kid who is going to
college 3,000 miles away from home. I was thinking ekiga. Naturally,
once I have it, I'll do other stuff too.
Even if the applications don't work, shouldn't the correct driver itself
turn on the camera? Or does the driver not turn on the cam until it
gets a call from the application?
Thanks for your help.
