What is the model of your webcam?

You may want to have a look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Webcam

Also, what is the output of the following command in the terminal(applications>accessories>terminal

lsusb

that is LSUSB in lowercase.

Yes, you webcam seems to be supported by the pwc driver (http://www.lavrsen.dk/twiki/bin/view/PWC/WorkingWebcamsWithPWC) and should work with Ubuntu. This web page also has a list of applications you could use with your webcam in Ubuntu - http://www.linuxtv.org/v4lwiki/index.php/Webcams .

Can you help with this problem?
