I have had Cheese working on both Xubuntu vers 11.10 & 12.04. Cheese 
version used is 3.4.1. The video cam is an old Logitech Quick Cam IM 
connected by USB - 046d:08d9 at /dev/video0 - resolution is set at 
640x480. However, I have not been able to get it to work in Skype [vers 
2.20.35 - Oneiric] with either 11.10 or 12.04 Xubuntu. The video cam is 
recognised but a "test run" in Skype gives nothing. Using Cheese to 
record me looking intently at a computer screen is not of much use - the 
idea was to contact grand-children via Skype with Linux [Windows XP - 
with Skype works!]. I also need help.
