Hello.

In my migrating to MEPIS11, I lost my webcam capacity.

I have the «gspca-891510e73ea7.tar.bz2» file, but I do not remember how to procede. The installations instructions were in the Spanish MEPISIMO forum (not accesible today).

Does anyone to guide me for to install newly?

Thanks for your help.

Right-click on the file and choose 'Extract Archive Here'. There will be a readme file. Read it. There may be an install file. Make sure it doesn't include instructions. Before compiling/installing you will need the build-essentials installed. See Preconfiguration here: http://www.mepis.org/docs/en/index.php?title=Compiling

Thanks for your help.

Lamentably, my manipulation of the extracted folder provoked a serious problem at time of run the luckyBackup, and I was forced to alter the priorities.

I am reporting this problem in a paralel message:
