    Smile Acer Aspire 5100 webcam drivers

    Wondering if some one can point me toward ubuntu drivers that will work with an acer aspire's web cam, since I have put ubuntu 9.04 on this machine the web cam does not work or can I activate it, a good indication that there is a problem is the green led that indicates the webcam is active is always on.I have tried a couple of drivers that are available from other open source driver sites but none of them have worked out for me yet.

    Thank you in advance to any who reply

    Couldn't get the 5100 webcam working in 8.04 but have had success under 9.10. I just installed the program Cheese and am able to take snaps and video. Picture is a bit dark but I haven't modified any default settings yet.
