I'm running Ubuntu 12.04LTS in my MSI FX600 003US laptop and the OS seems to be unable to detect the device itself. I'm not really familiar with Ubuntu so I might need some guidance in here in reference to what you might need for me to post in order to understand the issue.

Thanks in advance!

Hmm, I don't see your webacam there. Can you do lsusb too please? –  Seth Apr 2 at 2:12
    
Edited including lsusb output from terminal @Seth –  satrian6strings Apr 3 at 2:39
    
Well I certainly don't see the camera there.. –  Seth Apr 3 at 3:32
    
I don't know... when I was running Windows on this laptop I was able to use it. I'm kinda lost here. –  satrian6strings Apr 4 at 3:48
    
turns out when I press the "Fn" key plus "F6" (which is for enabling and disabling the webcam) the last item in the lsusb command disappears and then when pressing that key combination again it reappears. Is it possible that the webcam is this one? Bus 002 Device 004: ID 5986:0262 Acer, Inc @Seth –  satrian6strings Apr 4 at 3:56
