    Webcam & Microphone problem

    Hi guys,
    I am pretty new in the Linux world and I have some difficulties doing basic stuff. Okay yesterday I got to install Skype thanks to the forum, and today I am stuck with the webcam and sound installation.
    When I plug in my webcam, there is the green light on the webcam on as if I was constantly using it. But when I am making a call on Skype, there is no webcam and no microphone. It doesnt recognize it actually. Maybe bcause its a Microsoft ?
    Its a LifeCam VX-1000.
    Also, I have a laptop and there is an integrated microphone but Linux doesnt seem to recognize it either. Thanks very much for your time and help.

    I'm terrible with computers and new to linux (not a good combination).
    I'm having a similar problem. I cannot get my microphone to work, either the one built in with my camera (VX3000 I believe), or the mic from a headset I have.

    Have you tried testing your video cam in the Skype Menu? (Options > Video Devices) Is the right type of advice entered?

    Does anybody have any advice for the microphone issue?

    Thanks
