http://ubuntuforums.org – HI, using Xubuntu 12.04.01 since a few weeks I hit now the point to activate my webcam within skype.

(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 http://mxhaard.free.fr/spca5xx.html I figured out (Hardware)
