I am trying to make it work on my Fujitsu-Siemens notebook - rather old - which is running Slackware 12.2. I don't know what kind of applications are suited for this device. So if someone is using a webcam please post a howto for me. I was searching slackbuilds but found only gtkam. Is it for webcams or only for photo cameras? Any help very welcomed.

I think you need to upgrade your kernel in order to have gspca driver installed and detects your webcam
you can use guvcview in order to test your webcam under Linux. It's available on SlackBuilds
