You need to provide useful details for help. Saying you've got a "Compaq Laptop", tells us nothing...what model? What have you tried, other than running Ekiga? Look at the output of "lsusb", and "dmesg", and see if you can spot the webcam being identified. Also, try to run a different program, like Cheese, to see if the webcam will work under a different app, which would tell you if the DEVICE isn't supported at all, or it's not supported under EKIGA.

Also, you may want to load the latest version of Ubuntu...the latest is 10.04, and you can get it from their website. Newer versions usually equal greater hardware support, and more bug fixes.
