i have this webcam and CHEESE say it have nt found a webcam of course SKYPE either so none of them can see it.
i have read a lot of forums but nobody has an answer.

this is what lsusb say:
Bus 005 Device 002: ID 093a:2628 Pixart Imaging, Inc.

Also i have read a while ago that there is a kind of emulator for windows like it can install driver that are made for windows into linux but i dont trust that.
is there an easy way to make it work?

I have the same problem. I tried downloading & compiling v4l and it still didn't work. I basicly followed this procedure:

but it still didn't work for me.

The 093a:2628 webcams use the gspca pac7311 driver, and should work OOTB.
If not, try to compile the gspca snapshot.
Gspca Snapshot (http://stemp.wordpress.com/2010/05/17/gspca-snapshot/) is in French, but shouldn't be difficult to understand :)
