Want to use built-in camera in linux.

Dear All,

 

 

I purchased a Lenovo G570 (Model Name: 20079).

It has Core i3 2350M and 4GB RAM.

 

I have installed Ubuntu Linux on my laptop.

 

How can I use the built-in camera of my laptop?

 

Sincerely,

Srinivas Nayak

Hi,

 

The few articles I Googled on this topic indicated that the webcam should Just Work.  Does this guide help?
