I'm new to ROS and using for a research project. Trying to get a usb_cam node up and running which will then create a .bag file to perform SLAM with. I compiled the SLAM library I want and tested with a .bag I downloaded but now trying to get usb_cam to work.

I have a Logitech C210 webcam, running Ubuntu 14.04 (Virtual Box). I made usb_cam and compiled but when I do 'rosrun usb_cam usb_cam_node' I get that it is unable to open camera calibration file, camera calibration file not found, unknown control white_balance_temperature_auto, and after a while it seg faults and quits.

I have the same problem in which im using a logitech camera. Im running ubuntu 16.04.1 though. When i run rosrun usb_cam usb_cam_node, I get the exact same error and it quits. I read many tutorials online and all of them invole getting some kind of an image output from the camera.
