I needed to set up mine, -- fortunately I had OS X 10.5.8 installed.

Step by Step ->
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MactelSupportTeam/AppleiSight

Worked on Linux Mint 9, (Based on 10.04 LTS)
Mine is a MacBook 3,1 (Late 2007)

Once It was installed, I tested it with Cheese, and it worked normally.
