I have a Lenovo Y530. I ran lsusb, but the webcam is internal. I'm trying to get the webcam to work in Skype but nothing is showing up. I installed cheese, nothing there too. Thanks for any help. Oh and I checked gstreamer-properties. COulden't find the webcam there.

Thanks Peter. Guess 11.04 has everything in it!

This is what solved it for me. xD


Then in some thread in Ubuntu forums(an excellent place to start your search), someone asked to use hot keys to toggle the webcam. In Lenovo Y530, its Fn+Esc. :roll:
