I have this webcam too, searching the web for information on how to install it on Ubuntu I concluded that it is not supported under Linux:

This webcam is not listed in USB IDs list:
http://www.linux-usb.org/usb.ids

It is not in the list of devices supported by the gspca driver (it supports some other Pixart Imaging Devices (Genius webcams)
http://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentat...inux/gspca.txt

So, if you're looking for a webcam to be used with Ubuntu, better avoid this one.
