WebCam Issues with IM (Howto)


I am trying to get a webcam working for my kids. The webcam seems to get loaded (Ubuntu 7.10) as I can see myself in Kopete device section. But that is all I can make it do. My question is how to get it to work with IM? How do I make it connect with another IM user (AIM)? I have never messed with webcams before so I am not sure how to procede.

Thanks for any and all assistance.
