The default resolution for the CS331 is 160x120 on initialization. There's no way in the driver's options to change the default res, or even it's working output res; it's all dependant on the software using the cam. In the post-Gates Microsoft world, the default res is used in their newest Messenger without a clear way to change it, resulting in the image looking like ****. Help?

Go to System, on the top bar, then Preferences and select Monitors. On the Monitor Preference screen there will be different resolution settings that you can choose. If there are any resolution settings higher than 800X600 like 1024X768 etc. select it and apply.
If there is no other settings available go to System then Administration and select Additional driver. When the Additional drivers screen appears check if it recommends a a driver to be downloaded. If it does, download the driver and then you will be able to get higher screen resolutions.
If there is no additional driver to download it gets a bit tricky. You will need to edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. The file will look someting like this:
It will be wise to make a backup of this file if you are going to edit it. (xorg.conf.old) Inside the file you will see your screen and its resolution. (Preferred mode) You need to change the resolution, save the file and restart your session. If all went well your resolution will be set to what you specified, if your display freaks out replace the xorg.conf file with the xorg.conf.old file.
The Samsung Smooth only lets you zoom if you choose one of the two lower resolutions (320x240 or 160x120). Once one of those resolutions has been chosen, then pushing the buttons to the right and left of the OK button allow you to zoom.
