Hi all,

I have just purchased a very cheap webcam (£1.00), and I cannot get 
*buntu to recognise it?!

The only details I have are:

PNP (plug and Play)
CMOS colour sensors  ?	
24 bit true colour video mode
USB interface

"System Requirements"
Pentium 200, or higher CPU
win 98SE - XP

My Machine (s)
Ideally It would be used with the laptop so I will give that ones specs!

running Oneric (11.10)
Kernel 3.0.0-20-generic
Gnome 3.2.1
Dual core Intel Core duo T5250
3gb ram

Trying to use cheese but have got Kamoso installed and open to suggestions!

I have a driver on disk for Windows but cannot get any joy with wine or 

Any Ideas gratefully received
