Hello Guys

I have just installed Ubuntu for a friend of mine. He got a virus and I asked him the Question.

Do you want an OS where you wouldn't get virus ? He answered of course !

So I installed Ubuntu for him :) He loves it.

The problem is now he is starting to hate it, because his webcam isn't working.

It is a MSI StarCam 750i. is there way I can get his cool looking webcam to work with Ubuntu. He really needs his webcam.

We would greatly appreciate any help.

Thank You.

I have the same webcam MSI StarCam 370i and it works out of box sometimes when i start the computer with the webcam pluged in (only in lower resolution 320x240 and below). Most of the times it doesn't work and cheese crashes with "Segmentation fault" when i try to start it and sometimes simply cheese dont see my webcam. In every scenario i can see my webcam with 'lsusb'.
