Look here, noob.  I've been helping on this list since it was born, so don't
talk about things of which you know nothing.  I've also spent considerable
time, recently, helping someone with a webcam - and a quick google
of "ubuntu webcam" should make it clear to anybody that the very first
thing we need to know is the ID from lsusb.  Of course, if you have that,
you can probably tell via google whether or not it will work with Linux.
