I have a ricoh webcam inbuilt in my dv6000 laptop. I had an awful time getting it to work , seeing the bad condition of support for Linux. Well, better webcam was a feature for F10 and really got a lot of cameras working. Well, my turn’s finally here. Firmware for the webcam has been pushed into RPMFusion non-free. It hasn’t hit the repos yet (I couldn’t wait and built myself an RPM).
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 05ca:1810 Ricoh Co., Ltd Pavilion Webcam [R5U870]

I’m indebted to Hans de Goede who has been working on this. Thanks a bunch! 🙂
