http://ubuntuforums.org – I have googled all over, and checked every forum I could find, including this one. Yes there are tons of posts about this, but every link to all the drivers are broken. So I guess I'll create a new thread and get some fresh responses. I have a Sony Vaio VGN-CR220E with a built in webcam, when I partitioned my drive and installed Ubuntu 9.04 (now 9.10) the webcam has not worked. I "lsusb'd" and got: Code: Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 001 Device 002: ID 05ca:1839 Ricoh Co., Ltd Visual Communication Camera VGP-VCC6 [R5U870] Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 005 Device 002: ID 046d:c024 Logitech, Inc.
