I got my webcam to work sort of it is grainy and dark.
I have a Acer Aspire with a built in logitech webcam.

I also have the same problem, but on desktop pc with aiptek pencam.
I installed ubuntu 8.04 and cam works in some software but very grainy picture, in some other software at startup you get a brief picture, then it screws all the lines of it as if it is scrambled, but is still working as you can tell if you move in front of it.
also the picture quality is very poor compared to how it was in windows, although it is a low resolution cam anyway, but by comparison it seems much much worse now.
