Review of Linux Compatibility
The Gembird CAM66U is a USB webcam, which is shipped in at least two different version. The versions have different USB-IDs:
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 09da:021f A4 Tech Co., Ltd Bus 002 Device 006: ID 18ec:3299 Arkmicro Technologies Inc.
The versions with USB ID 18ec:3299 is automatically supported under Linux (e.g. since Ubuntu 12.10) by the uvcvideo kernel module:
uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device USB2.0 PC CAMERA (18ec:3299) uvcvideo: UVC non compliance - GET_DEF(PROBE) not supported. Enabling workaround. input: USB2.0 PC CAMERA as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.0/usb1/1-1/1-1.5/1-1.5:1.0/input/input17 usbcore: registered new interface driver uvcvideo USB Video Class driver (1.1.1)
