Webcam driver for Lucid Puppy 501?
 
I just got an Inexpensive webcam and it works fine in CrunchBang with "Cheese" (which is apparently a front-end for Gstreamer).

Is there something similar for Lucid Puppy 501?

The cam shows up in the "hardware info" list, but there is no application included to run it - at least that I can find.

thanks for any help provieded.

I use gucview with my inexpensive webcam; haven't tried it with Lucid Puppy, but it should be available in the Ubuntu repos.

Thanks for the suggestions.

I did do a couple of quick searches, here and at other forum before posting question, but I am on slow dial-up connection with limited time allowance and searches that come up empty are annoying :-((

So, consider my post as solved.
