My Samsung 900x running Ubuntu 12.04 has a camera above the screen.
How do I access it? Turn it on/off?
I can't find any app in setting that does this.

I tried installing the Cheese Webcam Booth but when I start the app the app. screen is blank and I can't take a photo...
Update - I was able to install and use Camorama - though a reboot was needed after the install before I could use the app at all. However, although the webcam does seem to be working now, one thing I still can't do is use it to take a picture (as many sites with profiles now encourage). When I try to take a pic I get a small error window with
Could not create directory '~/Webcam_Pictures' I've create the directory myself, manually and set permissions to 777, e.g.
$ cd ~ $ pwd /home/durrantm drwxrwxrwx 2 durrantm 4096 Jun 2 09:49 Webcam_Pictures/
but no luck, still get the can't create directory message
