    first see if its detected by the computer with:

    Code:
    lsusb
    if it is, then see if its working by installing cheese:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install cheese

    I just went to the Logitech site and it explicitly says the C270 doesn't support Linux:

    Sorry about that. I was looking for decent Linux compatible camera too.

    To the OP: follow the first bit of advice, run cheese from cli, and paste any error output.

    True. I suppose that was a logical fallacy on my part.

    I installed my Logitech C270 about 10 minutes ago in Ubuntu 13.04. It didn't work at first, so I unplugged the USB plug and plugged it back in, then it worked.

    On Ubuntu 13.04, the device is called:
    ID 046d:0825 Logitech, Inc. Webcam C270 when I use the command 'lsusb' in the terminal
    UVC Camera (046d:0825) (PTLIB/V4L2) in Ekiga
    UVC Camera (046d:0825) (/dev/video0) in Skype.

    I haven't downloaded anything additional, so it must work with the drivers built into Ubuntu 13.04.
