    Webcam Easycam USB 330K not working


    using Xubuntu 12.04.01 since a few weeks I hit now the point to activate my webcam within skype. Unfortunately the webcam is neither working within Skype or within Cheese. I only see a black frame with no content. Skype detects the webcam as "USB camera (093a:2600)(/dev/video1)". (side note - webcam is working within Windows XP - so the webcam isn't broken).

    The Webcam has the following details (generated with lsusb):
    ID 093a:2600 Pixart Imaging, Inc. Typhoon Easycam USB 330K (newer)/Typhoon Easycam USB 2.0 VGA 1.3M/Sansun SN-508

    On the website I figured out, that in general the webcam support is given, based on the driver gspcav1 (using sensor/bridge Pac7311) . But I fear this information might be related to an previsous Xubuntu/ubuntu kernel.

    Any hints for further investigation are welcome.
    Thanks in advance for your help!
