Logitech QuickCam Chat in Ubuntu 9.10, Won't Work

Hey everybody, I just got Ubuntu Karmic, and I'm trying to get my Logitech Quickcam Chat to work. In Skype, all I get is a funny green screen.

Here's some info:
codegrazer@ubuntu:~$ lsmod | grep gspca
gspca_spca561 9372 0
gspca_main 22812 1 gspca_spca561
videodev 36736 1 gspca_main
codegrazer@ubuntu:~$ lsusb

Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Bus 002 Device 003: ID 046d:092e Logitech, Inc. QuickCam Chat
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
codegrazer@ubuntu:~$ lsmod | grep v4l
v4l1_compat 14496 1 videodev
codegrazer@ubuntu:~$ ls -l /dev/v4l
total 0
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 60 2009-12-05 15:07 by-id
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 60 2009-12-05 15:07 by-path
codegrazer@ubuntu:~$ LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/ skype
ERROR: object '/usr/lib/libv4l/' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.

Camorama doesn't work either, it closes after a mean "Cannot Capture Image" message. I've made sure that I have video permissions. I've gotten this cam to work a long while back with an older version of Ubuntu. This is getting a little agitating. Anybody know what's wrong?

Is it supported by the kernel you are now using? Also all video driver v4linux etc?
