Hi,

I have a problem with using my webcam. It's not that it doesn't work - I can turn it on using fn+f7, but the picture I get (using Cheese) is heavily distorted. Any support would be appreciated.

Thanks.

(I'm on Karmic Koala)

update: sometimes cheese says no camera was found at all, and it doesn't transmit anything at all. once the image whas upside-down(apart from that it was clear).

If you open a terminal session and enter the command:
lsusb
it should show you the brand and model of your webcam. If you Google it along with the word "linux" you might find useful information.
