When I bought my laptop, Dell Inspiron 1545, Ubuntu 8.10 was already installed on it. A webcam was built into the computer. I typed into the command line, "webcam" and through a series of processes, I installed it:
sudo apt-get install webcam
Then, I ran webcam via command line: "webcam" and all my computer did was light up. How do I know take a picture/capture video? Camorama doesn't detect it, even if its on. Please and Thank you!
