The fact it works in Windows is moot to us.

Can you please provide the output of:

Hi,

In order to gather essential troubleshooting information about your webcam, please first follow this procedure:

Step 1: Open Terminal from "Applications->Accessories->
Terminal"

Step 2: Run the following command. The command STARTS with the word cat and ENDS with the word uvc. So please copy-paste the ENTIRE command below into a Terminal and press <enter>.

cat /proc/asound/cards; dmesg | grep usb; dmesg | grep ideo; lsusb; lsmod | grep uvc

Step 3: Please post results (copy/paste terminal output) on this thread

Step 4: Please let us know if webcam works out-of-the-box in ekiga, skype or kopete

Regards,

Mark

Step 4: Please let us know if webcam works out-of-the-box in ekiga, skype or kopete

According to this link:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupportComponentsMultimediaWebCamerasLogitech

you webcam should work out-of-the-box using the program called ekiga

I will try that tonight when I get home. I remember setting up Ekiga but had to do something else....I may ahd to re-start the computer...do not know.
