how to set up my webcam in #!

I recently brought a new webcam and I am clueless in how to set it up.  The installation manual of course assumes I am using windows.  So what do I do to be able to use my webcam?  Please help me. sad

Re: how to set up my webcam in #!

are you using it with skype? or something else...
a fine program to use to check it out is cheese, no really;

sudo apt-get install cheese

this, for me, gets it working, but instructions for individual programs are different.
post back if cheese don't pick it up!

If you do not want the Gnome 3 bloat, there is also guvcview. But even Skype or Gtalk from the browser can test your cam. I doubt it is compatible if the test fails in those.

hey thanks guys cheese and guvcview works.  Is there any other programs that I can use?  Just curious but those two programs works great.  guvcview works a little better than cheese in my opinion

Re: how to set up my webcam in #!

It was more a joke because it is a KDE app but you did right. Not sure where the problem is. Maybe you are still on Statler/Squeeze?
