Umax are notorious for being almost impossible to setup due to no help from the manufacturer regarding information to do the sane backends. The easiest thing to do with a Umax scanner is throw it in a bin and get look for one that is supported.

With regard webcam. Please look at Ubuntu webcam documentation and look at the application 'cheese'. If you have any camera questions. Please submit a new question.
