In windows i can open my computer and click on the webcam icon to get a feed from my webcam. I do not know your webcam model and the used linux distribution so i cannot give you a detail suggestion. Linux webcam drivers are provided by several different projects. Although the linux uvc project covers many devices, support for others is provided elsewhere. This section aims to help you install your webcams drivers if they have not been automatically installed by ubuntu. Note for this guide to work, you will need a webcam that is compatible with the linux platform. Ensure you are using a webcam that works with linux by installing the correct drivers for your linux distribution, or by purchasing one that has open-source drivers included in the linux kernel. Ieee 1394 webcams require an ieee 1394 pci card or an ieee 1394 bus port on your mainboard. The ieee interface has been supported in linux since the early 2. If you are lucky enough to own such a device, generic information on support of the ieee 1394 bus in linux can be found at www. If youve disabled the webcam in the bios or uefi setup screen, then youll need to reboot and hold down f2 or another key to access the menu. Change the camera setting to enabled before saving and quitting.
