Hi,

I just installed Ubuntu 9.04 on my Vista loaded laptop - Everex SR5210T - and I think it doesn't recognize the builtin webcam. I can't seem to find drivers for this laptop anywhere (including Everex's site...I did email their tech support). I came across this during my searches as a way to test the webcam -
"Open a terminal window (Applications, Accessories, Terminal) and type:
gstreamer-properties
press Enter. On the resulting screen open the "Video" tab and click the "Test" button. "
When I try this, all I see is white snow in the test box making me think that indeed the drivers aren't installed.

Any ideas on how to solve this?

TIA.
