Laptop works fine out of the box besides the webcam, it is recognized as Lenovo EasyCamera at /dev/video0 , but I can't seem to make it work.

This is the image I get with Cheese.

Has anyone had any success with making it work?

Thanks.

Mine worked fine out of the box. I don't really need the cam but after running updates the mouse has started locking up when the cam is turned on.

Strange, skype sees it too but can't enable it.
