Yes, I did (sorry for not mentioning it) and yes - it works. Here is
one example of a picture taken with cheese:
[tingo at kg-u35jc ~]$ file ~/Pictures/Webcam/*
/home/tingo/Pictures/Webcam/2017-01-06-203204.jpg: JPEG image data,
JFIF standard 1.01, aspect ratio, density 1x1, segment length 16, Exif
Standard: [TIFF image data, little-endian, direntries=4, model=CZUR,
software=Cheese 3.16.1, datetime=2017:01:06 20:32:04], baseline,
precision 8, 2304x1728, frames 3

As you can see, cheese can do 2304x1728 for resolution with this scanner.

It worked without disabling anything.
