Linux compatible webcam?

Postby Old Marcus » Sun Nov 30, 2008 2:08 pm

I'm looking for a linux compatible webcam to use for skype video calls. Preferably reasonably cheap, and in the UK. If anyone knows of any, please reply. Cheers. :)
Linux Mint 8 RC1 = Nice
'apt install' can be used on Linux Mint as a shortcut for 'sudo apt-get install'. 'apt x' can be used for various other apt commands as well.
When a problem is solved, please add [SOLVED] to your thread title.

In Felicia most webcams should work - pick a few and search for them + Linux - if that seems good it sure works in Felicia
When I googled for linux compatible webcam I got lots of old hits - I found it hard to get a decisive answer
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
