Question installing drivers for webcam in DELL XPS M1530


I have installed ubuntu 9.04 linux in my laptop. Can any one figure out what software or drivers needed to make the webcam operational so that it can be used for videochat in gmail or any other chat client.

Startup cheese and see if it works first. If cheese isn't there, just install it.
