    Use the synaptic packe manager.

    System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager

    Do a search for cheese. It'll be right on top of the list. Click the box next to it and click mark for installation. Hit the apply button in the toolbar and it will download and install.

    What do you mean it didn't work? Did you get an error message or something? I just installed it through synaptic 5 seconds ago so if it's failing for you then you may have a problem with apt.

    Yes, we see it didn't work but can't figure out why it didn't work unless you post the output.

    go to the terminal. type

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install cheese
    wait for it to finish. highlight everything it printed on the screen and copy it. Paste it here.
