My webcam was working just fine on 11.10, but since I've upgraded from 11.10 to 12.04 (which I wan to stay with), it's not working at all. On websites, it says It does not recognize the webcam or that i do not have one. On cheese, it crashes the app, and other webcam apps, only show one part of the recorded image of the camera

this is a photo taken with another app i do not remember the name, you can see 4 fingers, but the rest is all green. Same happens on cheese, but after that, cheese crashes.


I asked on the debian community and ubuntu on google+, and they said me to rune the lsmod command on my ubuntu 11.10 in order to get the driver from 11.10 to use it on 12.04 after the upgrade, but I didn't get any response or any help at all from anyone or any forum.

here is the output of the lsmod:
