Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have been working on trying to get my webcam to work for hours.
I plugged it in and it automatically works with Cheese. I cannot get it to work with Skype, however. I am running Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS. It is 64 bit.
My Skype version is 22.214.171.124.
I ran lsusb and this is what it came up with for my webcam.
