This is page is mainly to provide a link to the correct driver for anyone Googling for the device ID (as I did).
So far (March 2005) the performance is not too excited: just as stated on the driver home page. The developers also state they have had no help from the manufactures :-(
You need this s/w installed:
You may have to check the exact kernel options required: I already had USB support compiled in, but I did add CONFIG_VIDEO_DEV and CONFIG_VIDEO_PROC_FS (25/03/05 for kernel 2.6.10 only CONFIG_VIDEO_DEV).
If you at least have USB support available you can plug the Webcam in: this should show the device ID (0xHHH/0xHHH) in the system log which can then be used to determine which driver is required.
FAILED: I first tried the QuickCam Express Driver http://sourceforge.net/projects/qce-ga which did not recognise the device ID. This is when I discovered that mine is a "new" type QuickCam Express (different sensor chip).
FAILED: So I tried http://home.tiscali.dk/tomasgc/labtec/ that claimed support for this device ID. I got the latest stable, 0.3 and it recognised the webcam OK: "hub.c: new USB device 00:07.2-2.2, assigned address 6" (the README does not list the device but this is incorrect !). This has now merged into the spca5xx driver.
Current (25/03/05): http://mxhaard.free.fr/download.html spca5xx driver project, latest is "0.560315 19/03/2005" and supports 2.4 and 2.6 kernels. My device ID is now listed in the README.

Gentoo-portage spca5xx 22/05/05 I notice that the driver now in Gentoo portage but even the masked version is 20050328 (1 behind).
