Linux Experts: Please help me get a camera working in GNU/Linux

Small USB Camera for Kids
Make: Sakar International
Model: 16380

lsusb from Ubuntu Linux shows:
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0979:0227 Jeilin Technology Corp., Ltd

Output from gphoto2 (none):
userkid@edubuntu-mach:~$ gphoto2 --auto-detect
Model Port

I've tried loading different camera models with gphoto2 but no luck.

Could I ask you for any suggestions as to how I might get this to work?

Also, is there an easy way to list out what device IDs the camera names from 'gphoto2 --list-cameras' match up to?

Thanks SO MUCH for all that you do for Linux!!
