I am an IT student and am taking the ubuntu linux class. I bought a laptop, a dell, super cheap and installed lucid lynx on it. I downloaded Cheese and the webcam works in that, but trying to go online to yahoo or whatever webcam does not work. I typed lsusb into a terminal and this is the output:


jenna@jennas-puter:~$ lsusb
