    Like he mentioned, you should just use kopete. I would recommend Pidgin as i find it much cleaner and easier to use than kopete but it does not have webcam support. Someday though...someday...

    Theoretically you can use your camera in kopete... Practically you will see when you try... I tried seeveral days ago to have a video chat with a friend of mine (i was using Kopete, he was using YM), but I couldn`t see him, he could not see me... Maybe you will have more luck...

    Pidgin does not have webcam support as of yet. There are several people working on it. I have never used Kopete with my webcam although I have used Skype video chat and it worked great. Which webcam do you have?
