    Can't run integrated Asus A52J webcam on ubuntu 11.10

    So, these are my Asus specs:

    Asus A42Jr/A52Jr:
    CPU Type = Intel Core i5 430M(2.26GHz Turbo Boost @2.53Ghz)/Intel Core i3 330M(2.26Ghz)
    Screen = 14″/15.6″
    Hard Disk = 500GB 5400rpm
    Optical Drive = DVD Super Multi
    Graphics Card = ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470
    Video Memory = 1GB DDR3 VRAM
    Resolution = 1366 x 768
    LCD Features = LED backlight
    Memory = 2GB 1066Mhz
    Memory Type = 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM
    Battery = 6-cell lithium ion
    Price = Rm3099

    (I thought it was best to put it all here)
    Here's the subject:

    I'm having problems with my integrated webcam (built into the lid of my laptop).
    I can tell it works - I mean: it's functioning- 'cause when I installed ubuntu 11.10, on the option (in the installation process) that asks you if you want to take a picture (to make it as your user image) it was functioning, I could see myself... but I've tried to install cheese in order to open the webcam, but it does nothing... cheese also doesn't work!


    So,
    I ran the output for lsusb; lsb_release -a and cheese:


    swintha@swinthawulfs-K52Jc:~$ sudo -i
    [sudo] password for swintha:
    root@swinthawulfs-K52Jc:~# lsusb;lsb_release -a

    root@swinthawulfs-K52Jc:~# cheese
    Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0".

    (cheese:3499): Clutter-CRITICAL **: Unable to initialize Clutter: The OpenGL version could not be determined
    root@swinthawulfs-K52Jc:~#


    I seriously do not understand the problem...

    I wonder if it has anything to do with me not being able to install the Nvidia drivers?..

    Can anyone help me out?
    What do I do?


    Thanks, swintha
