    first see if its detected by the computer with:

    Code:
    lsusb
    if it is, then see if its working by installing cheese:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install cheese

    I just went to the Logitech site and it explicitly says the C270 doesn't support Linux:

    Sorry about that. I was looking for decent Linux compatible camera too.

    That logitech does not support linux, does not entail that linux does not support logitech cameras.

    To the OP: follow the first bit of advice, run cheese from cli, and paste any error output.

    True. I suppose that was a logical fallacy on my part.

    Hi you all,
    I reckon this is an old post, but still...

    I'm looking for a good webcam to be used in an old PC running Lubuntu 12.04 and I'm tempted to buy a C270. I wonder if you could eventually make it work in Ubuntu, despite the Logitech disclaimer.

    Thanks for your feedback.
    Cheers.
    Thanks for your patience.

    Hi, everybody! My c270 works out-of-the-box in Ubuntu 12.04 x64.
    Didn't test the sound yet, but the pic is definitely there. Tested with Skype and cheese.

    Thanks for your feedback, shoguevara. It would be great to hear again from you in case you test sound too.

    Cheers.
    Thanks for your patience.
