Ubuntu 12.04.

I own a Samsung NC10, with a 1.3 Mega Pixel integrated digital motion camera. (That I copied from the Specs page.)

But how do I know if it's linked up? (Can I use a program or something?)

If so, what if it's not linked up? How can I link it up?

Sorry for the multiple questions, but my web camera is quite important as I might get Skype.

Any help appreciated.

Use lsusb to list devices, assuming the camera is listed you could use cheese (it should be in the repos) to test that it is working

Thanks very much! It found the camera fine. – horIzoN Feb 22 '13 at 16:49
