GoogleTalkPlugin, Webcams et Debian/Ubuntu ou Arch

GoogleTalkPlugin est disponible pour Linux depuis quelques temps déjà.

Malheureusement le support des webcams n’est pas toujours au rendez-vous, ce greffon gérant seulement les drivers uvc et certains sous-drivers gspca.

Et bien évidemment mes deux webcams ne sont pas encore reconnues :)

C’est notre vieille amie la bibliothèque v4l2 et sa couche de compatibilité qui va venir encore une fois à notre aide.

Nous allons donc créer un «wrapper» libv4l pour le GoogleTalkPlugin.

Direction le répertoire d’installation du greffon :
cd /opt/google/talkplugin/

Et voici le coupable (qui, il faut le souligner, est, même sous 64 bits, un exécutable 32 bits) :
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 5660892 12 janv. 00:36 GoogleTalkPlugin

Renommons le en .real :
sudo mv GoogleTalkPlugin GoogleTalkPlugin.real

Créons maintenant un nouveau fichier bash nommé GoogleTalkPlugin contenant le code suivant :

Pour 32 bits :
#!/bin/sh
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so /opt/google/talkplugin/GoogleTalkPlugin.real

Pour 64 bits :
#!/bin/sh
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l1compat.so /opt/google/talkplugin/GoogleTalkPlugin.real

On le rend exécutable :
sudo chmod +x GoogleTalkPlugin

Et Voilà ! Au prochain démarrage de votre navigateur votre webcam devrait être détectée.
Tout n’est pas encore parfait et le greffon s’obstine à utiliser ma première webcam.

Debian CUT

CUT (Constantly Usable Testing) est un projet initié par Joey Hess visant à faire de la version testing de Debian, une version plus sûre et toujours installable via des «snapshots» réguliers.

Gspca Snapshot

[Fr] Jean-François Moine nous offre maintenant sur son site des «snapshots» du driver gspca v2, ce qui rend encore plus facile l’obtention de la dernière version.

Pour ce faire, avec Debian/Ubuntu, il nous faut les paquets build-essential et linux-headers.

sudo aptitude install build-essential linux-headers

Ensuite direction Jef Moine sur Free.fr et récupération de la dernière archive :

Snapshot Gspca

Snapshot Gspca

Décompression, un make puis un sudo make install plus tard vous aurez la dernière version :)

[En] Jean-François Moine is now offering on his site «snapshots» of the gspca v2 drivers.

To build them on Debian/Ubuntu you need build-essential and linux-headers packages.

sudo aptitude install build-essential linux-headers

Then go to Jef Moine on Free.fr and get the latest archive or check below the download link.

Uncompress, make then sudo make install and that’s it :)

gspca-2.15.18

Changelog :

VERSION=2.15.x

#18: gspca – sonixj: Adjust the brightness for sensor mi0360b
# The images could not be bright enough under low light.
# gspca – ov534/ov534_9: Fix sccd_read/write errors
# The ov534 bridge is too slow to handle the sensor accesses
# requested by fast hosts. A small delay fixes the problem.
# gspca – sn9c2x: Change the default values of blue and red
# The default values of blue and red (40) were too high for the
# green values (32).
# Also, as these controls are sensitive, their ranges have been
# reduced to 16..48.
# gspca – sn9c2x: Have a bigger luminosity in autoexposure
# Without this change, the images remain too dark.

#17: gspca – sonixj: Fix a zero divide in isoc interrupt
# In case of short marker, the number of received packets was not
# incremented doing a zero divide when computing the filling rate.

#0: zc3xx: fix crash due to reg08 overflow

# 2.14.x

#8: alignment with git

#7: gspca – zc3xx: Initialize the registers reg07 and 08
# These registers were not initialized at start time for some sensors.
# gspca – zc3xx: Adjust the JPEG decompression tables
# As the bridge register 08 defines the JPEG compression quality,
# it must be changed on JPEG quality change and also, the decompression
# tables must be adjusted when the register varies.

#6: gspca – main: Fix bad computation of the available bandwidth
# The bandwidth must be divided by the frame interval ‘bInterval’.
# Reported-by: Hans de Goede

# gspca – zc3xx: add test control of the registers 07 and 08

#4: gspca – sonixj: Change color control for sensor po2030n
# Adjustment of the colors by the po2030n is finer than by bridge controls.
# gspca – sonixj: Add exposure, gain and auto exposure for po2030n
# The auto gain uses the knee algorithm.
# Adding the setexposure control function forced to:
# - rename of the previous function setexposure
# - add a specific auto setting function

#3: gspca – zc3xx: mode inversion of some values for zc0305/gc0303

#2: gspca – sonixj: Bad sensor mode at start time.
# The ‘open-drain’ mode was not reset when starting the webcam
# so that the webcams could be not correctly initialized.
# This problem was introduced by commit 0e4d413af1a9d.
# gspca – zc3xx: Bad initialization of zc305/gc0303.

# gspca – main: Fix the isochronous transfer interval.
# For USB speeds different of ‘low’, the bInterval value is logarithmic.
# gspca – main: Handle the xHCI error on usb_set_interface()
# This patch is adapted from a patch from Sarah Sharp (2010/05/03).
# The xHCD handler checks the USB bandwidth on usb_set_interface()
# instead of on usb_submit_urb().
# Now, the same treatment is applied in case of error of both functions.

# gspca – main: Better values for V4L2_FMT_FLAG_COMPRESSED
# In vidioc_enum_fmt_vid_cap, the ‘compressed’ flag was set from the
# pixelformat, and all pixelformats were not treated.
# Now, images are said as compressed when the image size is smaller than
# its number of pixels.
# gspca – benq: Remove useless function sd_isoc_init
# The sd_isoc_init() did only a set interface which is done in gspca main.
# gspca – main: Use a better altsetting for image transfer
# Previously image transfer used to use the highest altsetting, which, most of
# the time, took the whole USB bandwidth.
# Now, the altsetting is chosen according to an estimation of the bandwidth
# needed for image transfer.

#1: gspca – ov519: change again the ovfx2 bulk transfer size
# Use 7 * 4096 as bulk transfer size for 800×600 only.
# gspca – kinect: add its generation in build/Makefile
# gspca – stv06xx: Set a lower default value of gain for hdcs sensors

# I set back the value which was found in the original qc-usb driver (50).
# gspca – sonixj: fix about the auto JPEG quality
# gspca – stv06xx: Remove useless debug messages.
# This subdriver displayed information already displayed by the gspca main
# or available by usbmon.
# gspca – tp6800: fix the settings of JPEG compression / decompression
# gspca – tp6800: adjust controls for tp6810 and ovxxxx

#0: gspca – zc3xx: Set the color matrix for sensors hv7131b and mc501cb
# gspca – zc3xx: Set the reset level for sensors hv7131b/r
# gspca – zc3xx: Don’t probe the sensor hv7131r at start time
# gspca – zc3xx: Set the exposure of hv7131r at start time
# gspca – main: Set a correct interval for input polling
# The interrupt intervals of USB2.0 and USB3.0 are logarithmic.
# gspca – main: Limit the input polling interval
# The input polling does not need to be very precise.
# Restricting to 4 or 5 times per second seems enough.
# gspca – ov519: Fix a regression for ovfx2 webcams
# By git commit c42cedbb658b, the bulk transfer size was changed to a lower
# value for a resolution != 1600×1200, but the image extraction routine
# still worked with the previous value, giving bad truncated images.
# gspca – ov519: Change the ovfx2 bulk transfer size
# The ‘normal’ bulk transfer size did not work for 800×600.
# By git commit c42cedbb658b, this ‘normal’ size was used for 1600×1200 only.
# It will now used for resolution greater than 800×600.
