    uvcvideo module not loaded

    Hi,

    When I start lubuntu my webcam will not work in cheese or skype. To fix the problem I need to load the uvcvideo module like this:

    Code:
    sudo modprobe uvcvideo
    Now everything works perfectly.

    Where can I add uvcvideo to the list of modules that should load on start-up, and why is it not loaded automaticly? I think a USB device should be automaticly detected. I want it to work for all users.

    This is my webcam

    Code:
