I'm having trouble with my internal camera on my Acer. I don't know how to

It looks like the Acer uses an Orbicam  (just found that by googling for
your laptop's make and model).  This website [1] looks like it provides some
good instructions on how to get the proper driver installed.  (Be sure to
grab the most recent version of the driver).

To install it, you'll first need to install the "build-essentials" package,
and your kernel headers, I think.  Someone else may be able to provide
better instructions.

If you have further questions, though, feel free to try back with the list,
or join us on IRC.
