Hello I am relatively new to Ubuntu, and so far so good, but the odd things wont work like my webcams. I have a logitech camera and I was wondering if there is any "easy" way to get the camera working?

Many of the logitech camera's "just work" and many more are easy to get going; which one do you have?
lets have a peek at the output of:

And also be sure to include any details you know about the camera; things like, model, version, revision, etc...

Is the logitech webcam plugged in right now?
Is the logitech webcam plugged in through that hub? if so can you plug it in directly for now?
I'll dig around for some Pixart info as well.

Here's a guide that has the Pixart cam, it is translated from German.

Perhaps try this first, it could be a nice solution to both of your cameras:

I dont understand what any of that means apart from adding repostories which I knew how to do previously

I tried to add the "blognux" software sources given in the instructions for Easycam and recieved a "Could not download all repository indexes" for the two new added repositories.

Could somone verify this?

the sources I used this morning on an intrepid box were:
deb http://blognux.free.fr/ubuntu hardy main
deb-src http://blognux.free.fr/ubuntu hardy main
there is no repo key needed

Then just use the package manager, System-->Administration-->Synaptic package manager, and search for easycam if you are using ubuntu install the easycam2-gtk package and if you're using Kubuntu install the easycam2-qt package

this does not work yet for Jaunty, I'm trying to find a work around. so if anyone knows a work around for jaunty please share.
