    I should probably of said that the printer is on the local network and the Webcam is currently not connected should it be for the above tests?

    For the printer you will need to search the web.

    With regards to the webcam, assuming it's USB, then plug it in and run lsusb again and post output.

    I'd say that's the webcam? It should be supported by the kernel. Have you tested it? If you're using gnome, try installing something like camorama and see if it works - that's all the help I can offer, as I don't use a webcam myself.

    Good luck

    Mathew, hello.

    Try executing skype using a script as follows...

    #!/bin/sh
    #
    # Use this to run Skype so that the v4l libs are
    # pre-loaded.
    #
    # Move the installed binary to some other name and
    # make that new name the target of the execute.
    #
    LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so
    export LD_PRELOAD
    /usr/bin/skype-bin

    Cheers VP

    It seems this camera should be supported by the uvcvideo driver out of the box unless your kernel is old.
    Report the output of the following commands.
    $ sudo uname -r
    $ sudo modprobe uvcvideo
    $ sudo lsmod | grep uvcvideo
    Have a look at the output of "dmesg" and check if any problems are displayed.

    If it still doesn't work, subscribe to the devel list and they'll deal with it:-
