Not out of the box

After compilation of the module using qc-usb-source

Make sure the build-essential package and the correct linux-headers package are installed. Install the package qc-usb-source, uncompress the archive /usr/src/qc-usb-modules.tar.gz and execute /usr/src/modules/qc-usb-source/quickcam.sh (Note: The driver is reliable and included in other distributions like Mandriva, it could be included in Ubuntu as well)

Ubuntu Hoary doesn't autodetect, but I have got the camera working by doing the steps listed here.

Image has blue taint with default gain levels. Has anybody got better colors using GRed,GBlue and GGreen parameters?

ov511

05a9:0518

No

Not out of the box, but can be made to work.

Warty and Hoary both detect and load the ov511 driver included with the kernel, but neglect to load the image decompressor kernel module. This is evidenced in dmesg by the line "drivers/usb/media/ov511.c: No decompressor available." To get things running, load the kernel module "ovcamchip" at startup. Driver home page is http://alpha.dyndns.org/ov511/, and problem solution is from here. Omnivision Technologies, Inc. OV518 WebCam
