WebcamStudio For GNU/Linux is done...Sorry guys, but I don't have enough time to continue, see the news flash
Thanks for all your support...

This will be now WebcamStudio Reloaded

The project is now maintained by Karl Ellis. You can find him on G+, or visit his website
Unfortunately no software at the refered site.

Many'a site suggest PPA install (since source compile is frightening)

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:upubuntu-com/multimedia

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install webcamstudio

That seems unwise given the abandoned nature of webcam studio. What is the least painful way to install webcamstudio reloaded?
