If it come with Ubuntu on it ..probably has all drivers installed and working ..and the use is the same in instant messaging ..just choose video call to use...It will activate by itself...if not...go to the manufacturer's site and download and install the camera's driver for the operation system you use..(Linux)

Webcam is not working after installing window7 in place of vista homebasic in pc compaq presario cq40

You need the drivers for the web cam.
Was this webcam built in or you bought it separately?
Please could you tell me the model number and name of the company so that I could help you find the drivers for it (if its compatible with windows 7).
