Logitech Orbicam on Acer Aspire 5680


I haven't found a thread with this issue raised so i decided to create one. I obviously have an acer aspire 5680 and it has a built in webcam which is advertised as an logitech orbicam.

I've tried different programs to use the cam such as xsane image scanner and DigiKam. The camera light comes on when they are both running, but i get no visual of what the camera should be seeing.

I've tried to get the system to auto detect but that came back negative and the logitech orbicam isn't on the list of known cameras.

Anyways heard of this issue and/or know what i'm doing wrong?
