    To install camera on ubuntu just go to applications section on desktop menu, then go to ubuntu software centre. in software center go to sound and video then in search box type guvcview and then click install it will take hardly 5 minutes. now your camera is ready to run.

    If a post is older than a year or so and hasn't had a new reply in that time, instead of replying to it, create a new thread. In the software world, a lot can change in a very short time, and doing things this way makes it more likely that you will find the best information. You may link to the original discussion in the new thread if you think it may be helpful.
