I'm completely new to Ubuntu. Just made the switch from windows 7 (ugh) to the newest 13.04

It was a little bit of a learning curve, but now that I've got it down (for the most part). I'm having trouble getting my webcam to work, it's not being recognized at all. I have the 64bit Skype version downloaded and it won't even open up.

Try to execute in a terminal sudo modprobe uvcvideo and check again. –  Salem May 24 '13 at 12:59
