Hi, what webcam does it use? (find out with lsusb or lspci) From what I've found, you need the SN9C20X driver, so search for it in the package manager.

Hi, in ubuntu you need to install linux-headers,build-essenstials en gcc packages in order to be able to compile a kernel module. Once you have these, following the README file should suffice.
