I have a Lubuntu 13.10 installed on a HP Pavillon dv6000. I just bought a new webcam, Make is Growing, model is "Impala PC Camera". I want to use it with skype, but it is not detected at all. Nor it is in cheese. Any help would be appreciated.

The following command gave those results:

lsmod |grep uvcvideo 

uvcvideo               71309  0  
videobuf2_vmalloc      13048  1 uvcvideo   
videobuf2_core         39125  1 uvcvideo   
videodev              107508  2 uvcvideo,videobuf2_core
