The software Camorama seems like just what you need.

And if you have trouble getting the webcam to work with Ubuntu, then
PLEASE write to Logitech and let them know that you need Linux support
for their cameras. Logitech is rightfully ignoring the Linux
community, because for some reason Linux users are not telling them
that we need their products to work. We write the ATI, and ATI opened
up their specs last September. Many other companies have followed
suit. Why people are afraid of Logitech I do not know. Here is their
contact page:
