The webcam is supported out of the box (the linux kernel already has the driver installed, no need to install it), check if the gspca module is loaded and try to test it with programs using the webcam.
$ lsmod | grep gspca

Thanks for your prompt reply, Kuranes. Sorry for my delayed reply, but I forgot to check back here in this forum because my webcam did start working the day I posted my question. I just needed to have the right settings through Ubuntu, as I found out.
