Hi

I'm a linux virgin and have choosed ubuntu. Everything has been rocking along very smoothly until I purchased the Logitech Quickcam E2500. I've tried reading about install but to be honest its a little over my head. Has anyone an idiots guide to getting such a device up and running?
I'd be grateful.

Hi. I've always had trouble with webcams too. But where have you started? Begin by installing a few different webcam utilities, and messing with a few of them. If you're find that none of them work, post back some of the errors you get, and we can try to troubleshoot.

I'd begin with camgrab, came, gqcam, and camstream

good luck.
