Skype calls my webcam "Generic Digital camera (/dev/video0), while in the Terminal it is recognized as "Bus 004 Device 002: ID 04fc:0561 Sunplus Technology Co., Ltd Flexcam 100". In the video setup in Skype nothing happens when I click the "test" button. I have found a driver "gspcav1-200071224.tar.gz" that says it is compatible with the Flexcam 100 but I do not know how to install or set this up.
