    Open Terminal, enter this command: lsusb

    On my computer, one of the output lines says:
    Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0ac8:303b Z-Star Microelectronics Corp. ZC0303 Webcam

    The important part of this is "0ac8:303b" which can be plugged into Google along with words like Ubuntu and Solved.

    Have you installed Cheese? How have you decided that Ubuntu didn't detect your webcam? The webcam on my HP G62 "just works."
