What's up with WHAT?? Yes, webcams work under Linux very well...but since you don't say what version/distro of Linux, what webcam, on what hardware, with what problems, there's nothing else anyone can tell you. Provide details and ask a good question, and we'll be glad to help.

Temper enthusiasm with information...

Open a terminal and use the command "lsusb" to find a listing of your USB devices. Post back with the results.

We take for granted that you will supply all that was requested by the good TB0ne.
