how to setup webcam on Hp Pavillion dv6

Asked by Devon Moyer on 2011-09-11

I recently made the giant leap to Ubuntu from Windows. I failed to check the certified hardware list. It turns out my HP Pavillion DV6 is not in that list. Therefore all my drivers aside of USB do not work. No webcam or audio. Please help!
