1. Adding the repository

The packet in question is now part of the community repository.

Uncomment this repository in /etc/pacman.conf to have the package available.

2. Downloading and installing

Download and install the driver with:

pacman -Sy qc-usb

If you use an alternate kernel, you can build the module with the PKGBUILD located here yourself.

3. Finding the module

The module is called c-qcam. Load it with modprobe or add it to the modules in /etc/rc.conf. Udev should autoload it on reboot, though.

NOTE: If you have Logitech Quickcam Messenger webcam, you need the qc-usb-messenger package from, for example, the AUR.
