I have ubuntu up and running great. Skype is failing due to camera not starting up. When I install cheese and run it, it first blinks the camera's light on then turns it off and won't take stills either.

I believe this is a driver issue, if you have an answer and have gotten it to work, or not and its hopeless, I'd love to find an answer.
