Hello everyone,
I'm a newbie to ubuntu. I installed it on my hp pavilion dv2 laptop and everything works great, at least everything except the webcam. I tried finding solutions online but to no avail. The web cam will work on cheese, but not with empathy or amsn. When I try to configure it, those programs don't even recognize it. What can I do? It's a built in webcam if that makes any difference. Any help is greatly appreciated.
