    Try installing Chrome browser for Ubuntu 12.04 should work out of the box, sound as well. Don't bother trying to use it on Firefox or Chromium as it won't work.If you have sound issues use PulseAudio.

    Works perfectly fine with both Firefox and Chromium...I would support either of those rather than closed source Chrome...

    Are both your video and audio feeds from your webcam not working? What version of Firefox are you using?

    My first recommendation would be to get Cheese, which is a webcam program available for free in the Software Centre and see if your webcam works with it.

    Re: Logitech C270 webcam install.

    I just bought this webcam and I'm using it on my Kubuntu 12.10 machine. I had to set the device preference order in Multimedia settings (both for audio and video, moving the webcam to the top), restart, and it worked. Not sure if the restart was necessary, but it didn't work initially in Skype until I restarted.

    Video and audio quality are great. Skype says the C270 is one of the supported HD (720p) webcams, but I'm not sure if that's true for linux, or just Windows or Windows and Mac. Anyone? (I can't tell if the video is streaming 720p or not though Skype.)

    I just wanted to add for those Googling that I just bought a Logitech C270 from Best Buy (July 2013) and I connected it to a Lenovo Twist running Fedora 18 64-bit with KDE and everything worked right out of the box (I used "Cheese" to test). I also tested it with Skype on Linux and it worked too.
