eViacam is an interesting facial mouse software that allows users to move their mouse cursor as they move their heads with the help of their web camera.

In this tutorial we will help you install it under Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot and any older version of Ubuntu (11.04/10.10/10.04), can also be installed on Debian Squeeze.

Open the terminal and install first these prerequisites:

sudo apt-get install libcv2.1 libhighgui2.1 libwxbase2.8-0 libwxgtk2.8-0

Then install eViacam with these commands:

wget -O eviacam_1.5.3-1_i386.deb http://goo.gl/eymDR
sudo dpkg -i eviacam_1.5.3-1_i386.deb
