where did you get it from? i suggest you get it from the repository by enabling the partner repos in software sources. after installing it from the repo, there's a wrapper script for it that would enable your webcam under skype.. you can run it by invoking it's filename: skype-wrapper. press ALT + F2 then type skype-wrapper

Can you help with this problem?
