I found a source for the drivers, but I installed them to no avail. I know they work because I've installed them before on this computer (I got a new hard drive) and yet I still can't get it to work. I am willing to give whatever information you need (I'm in AP US History at the moment taking notes, so I have time), and do whatever is necessary. Thanks for the help!

Hi, I'll see what I can do, and if not there are people much better than me at this. First of all, what is the name of the webcam (say, Creative LifeCam blablabla)?

I believe it's a Ricoh something or other. It's built in to my HP DV6000T.

Open up a terminal and type:


lspci

then


lsusb

Paste the output from these two commands in your next post this will help us determine what make and model of webcam you have.
