Hi Alex,

What is the make & model of the cameras you are using?

I've installed Cheese, and when one of the cameras is plugged into the usb, I can see the device, and it shows the same resolutions that it used to work at when I had XP Pro, but I get no picture at all. Anybody got any tips? I'm a bit of a Linux newbie; have been running Ubunbtu Studio for about 6 months now, and slowly getting to grips with everything. I'd like to use webcam with Skype and Pidgin. Any help would be appreciated. 64 bit Ubuntu 1o.o4 Studio distribution. Thanks, from Alex.
