There is nothing for Linux itself, nor is there expected to be.

The player in Chrome browser relies on a Google-created program interface, not on Linux, and the vendor has decided to supply the closed-source player only for that API.

^^^ TRUE THAT ^^^

The Ubuntu package probably contains an installer script that runs ift-extract when package is installed. IMO, it's easy to think of situations where this would not be a good idea. But that means you need to run ift-extract manually after the package is installed.

Looks like the manual page ift-extract.1(.gz) didn't completely make it into the package -- zero-length once extracted.

But 'ift-extract --help' is informative: ift-extract -a path/to/AppleUSBVideoSupport
If run as root, it should put isight.fw into lib/firmware; you probably don't need the -d or -f options.

Also, take a look at /usr/doc/isight-firmware-tools-1.6/README

Hello,

I installed isight-firmware-tools.
On link related to Ubuntu it is mentioned that isight-firmware-tools will ask for path where is file Appleusb......
WHen I installed isight-firmware-tools I was not prompted to do anything.
Obviously there must be some trick how to tell isight-firmware-tools to do with firmware what is needed.
Any suggestions?

If you don't have ONE of the following lines in your /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc , add the appropriate one:

SOURCE=http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.0/x86_64/
or
SOURCE=http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.0/x86/

I hereby confess to not knowing the architecture of a MacBook, but of course you do.

After installing isight-firmware-tools, you should disable the untested repo with gslapt, or change "SOURCE" to "#DISABLED" by hand.

BTW, anyone have a working "surf" on VL?

I gave a try a couple of months ago and it crashes after a few seconds. I wil try again.
BTW, I have been playing with http://conkeror.org/ and it works nicely
