Talk:Installing Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick) on a ThinkPad T61
Hi, I've tested IEEE1394 and it is working getting a video from a dv cam. I've followed the istructions in this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-916257.html : "9) Add your username (the person who will be logged in and doing the Video Capturing) to the group "disk".
To do this, click System -> Administration -> Users and Groups
Click the appropriate username, then click the Properties button, in the new window called "User Properties", click the Group tab.
Locate disk in the list and put a tick next to it. Now click ok, and close the "User Manager".
10) Open a terminal and type;
sudo gedit /etc/rc.local add the following line of text to it and save then close the file. /sbin/modprobe raw1394
sudo modprobe raw1394 then sudo chown "the username concerned" /dev/raw1394
Now restart your computer and get on with it! heh :popcorn:"
In this way I can register video with Kino. I don't know if I can modify wiki page. Let me know.
