    Looking for a webcam for Ubuntu 10.10


    ... I know 10.10 is out of date, but I DON'T wanna upgrade.

    Can someone tell me what to look for in a webcam? I just want Ekiga, and maybe I'll be conferencing at night, with electric lights in my room, so - that picture has to be clear.

    Can anyone tell me which one of these I can plug in and it'll just work?:

    AND

    Please change the domain names as the site is not letting me post URLs.


    Thanks SO much for your help guys.

    The link below is to the Ubuntu forums where the topic is discussed. The camera needs to be UVC compatible and there is a link in post #2 at the site below to their site with a list of compatible cameras. I've read that Logitech is if not the best, one of the easiest to get working on Linux. Certain models are better:

    Thanks yancek.
    Does the Logitech C270, for example have a clip, so I can clip it to my monitor? (I have a desktop). Do they all? How do I check?

    Thanks.

    Logitech C270 works great on Ubuntu Studio 13.04 and fits pretty good on most flat screen monitors.
