Hi everyone, pleased to report that I have found a webcam that works "out of the box" in Skype. The one I have is the Logitech Quickcam E3500. Just plugged it in and it worked with Skype. Strangely though, I have "Cheese" installed on my computer and it wont work with that, although I have tried it with the Gnome live cd version of PcLinuxoS using "Cheese" and it worked fine. Anyone have any ideas why it works in "Cheese" with PcLinuxOS, but not with Mint In "Cheese"? I am using Mint 5 Elyssa. Thanks.
