I have a creative live cam webcam and it is not working in hardy heron (8.04). If there is a driver for the webcam please let me know.

I have a camera that identifies itself as "Creative Technology, Ltd Live! Cam Vista IM" (when I type lsusb in a terminal window).

If you need drivers try running EasyCam 2 (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EasyCam).

It is working for me in Ubuntu 8.10 using Cheese and aMSN. The only problem I've found is that the Adobe Flash 10 plug-in does not work correctly with the webcam. Pictures are streamed but they are at the wrong resolution and are broken up and stripy.
