Hi Pascal

Being new is nothing to be afraid of

Firstly lets see if your camera is detected, plug it in (if its not built in) and run:

Code:
dmesg | grep usb
and

Code:
lspci | grep usb
as root, and then paste the output here for us to check over.

You could start off by reading here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Webcam
Also you should first check if it has been detected properly or not. To check it, connect the cam and then run lsusb and dmesg. You will know if it has been detected by reading the command output.
And you also need to install cheese package to use the cam. Its there in the repositories.

Hello,

Sorry for my late responce, I've been busy at work. I found out that I made a big mistake. The distro running on my PC is SUSE 11.3 not Ubuntu. I apologize.

Is this the same procedure for Suse?
