Hi, I'm new to Ubuntu settings up my mum and dads computer, everything is working fine apart from the webcam I tried a few google searches but no luck.

Could anybody please help me with this problem, I don't know the command to retrieve my system info sorry :(.

in a terminal type dmesg click enter
after it stops type lsusb click enter
the lsub should give a number and name of the cam
just in case you need to find a driver

install cheese and xawtv try the cam in xawtv first
the full name of cheese webcam booth as it shows up in sound and video

hope it comes on for you
