          Hello Kratos25, 

          Thank you for contacting Intel Customer Support. 

          Could you please give me more details about your setup?
          What camera are you trying to attach through USB?
          What power supply are you using? 
          Can you try running /sbin/lsusb and dmesg and send me the output?
          Where you ever able to use the camera with the Intel Edison board? 

          Thank you very much in advance for your answer. 
          Best regards, 
          Casandra

              Hello,

              I am using the webcam 300k Multilaser WC040.

               

              The output of the /sbin/lsusb  is :  -sh: /sbin/lsusb: No such file or directory.

                Hello Kratos25,
                 

                If the device is not shown as /dev/video0, could you please check if the Edison is recognizing the camera using the lsusb command:

                      root@edison:~# lsusb

                      Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub

                      Bus 001 Device 002: ID 046d:0809 Logitech, Inc. Webcam Pro 9000  <--- This is our video device

                      Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

                Afterwards, please check if the uvc driver is installed on the Edison, this can be done by executing the command below. It will return something similar to the described output below.

                       root@edison:~# find /lib/modules/* -name 'uvc'

                       /lib/modules/3.10.98-poky-edison+/kernel/drivers/media/usb/uvc <--- Installed

                If no output is returned then try to install first using opkg, and check if the device shows under /dev:

                      root@edison:~# opkg install kernel-module-uvcvideo

                      root@edison:~# ls /dev/video*

                      /dev/video0

                Let me know if this works. 

                Regards,
