USB cameras may require raising the amount of memory allocated to the USB subsystem. The Spinnaker drivers may fail without warning, or may give an error -1010 when this occurs. The usbcore variable usbfs_memory_mb should be set suitably large. This application note describes two common ways of setting it, via the kernel command line (edit /boot/grub.conf), or at runtime via /sys/module/usbcore/parameters/usbfs_memory_mb . An older method involving setting parameters in an appropriate file in /etc/modprobe.d/ is no longer applicable in recent Ubuntu systems which have usbcore built into the kernel rather than loaded with modprobe.
This driver is largely derived from the older Point Grey/Flycapture SDK, and the troubleshooting suggestions on that wiki page may be relevant.
