Hello and welcome to LinuxQuestions,
I recently was looking for a decent webcam that would work with Linux and went to this site
. It worked out of the box on my Slackware 13 and then I bought one for my wife too, and on her Ubuntu 9.04 it worked also like a charm. The one I bought was the Logitech Quickcam Orbit/Sphere AF, but anyone with the green checkmark behind it should do.
