    Unplug the camera if it is already connected, then plug the camera in, open a terminal and type "lsusb" then "dmesg" and post the output back here.

    You can go to add/remove and select Show: All Available Programs, then install Camorama Web cam Viewer. Then you should plug your web cam in and open the program. If it is supported then it should work. Other wise you will get a error when opening the program.

    My webcam is a logitech, not sure what model. I installed camorama, but when it loads up it stops responding. Are there any sort of restricted drivers I can get for my webcam?
