I have a Papalook PA452 webcam that I'm trying to use with Ubuntu 18.04. I'm not sure if it will work on Linux (the instructions only talk about Windows and Mac). It's plug and play for Windows and Mac, but when I use Cheese it doesn't seem to recognise the webcam.

I'm not sure what to do next. Do I need to find and install some drivers perhaps?

Thank you.


When my cam is in, the last lines of the output of dmesg:

Short Answer is NO

As you mentioned earlier, the user manual only mentions that it works only on certain OSs:

Windows XP/7/8/10 or later, Mac OS 10.6 or later, Chrome OSTM, Android v5.0 or above

from Papalook PA452 - User's Manual - Page EN-6

But looking for an answer for you i found THIS Question on AskUbuntu mentions some ways to make your device work on your OS

Hope this helps!
