Ok, I tried to install luvcview using the instructions found here:
Even though for a different cam and system, I didn't see why it would be
wrong. This is the instructions given:
zcat luvcview-20060920.tar.gz |tar xvf -
Obviously I changed "20060920" to "20070512" at each instruction.
There were lots of warnings and errors generated and I have no idea what it meant. The output that appeared in my terminal window is attached as a text file.
Does anyone who knows what this means have any suggestions for me?
