Hi i'm New to linux just finding my way round still
I'm trying to configure msn to run with linux cant get my web cam to work, I am trying to use a trust WB-3600R webcam been to trust sight cant find drivers 4 it on there.
Any ideas how to get web cam running please or where i can find drivers 4 it many thanks, Ian.
I am interested too, I would like to run MSN messenger on a Linux platform.
At the moment I use Pidgin (I guess the Linux or Ubuntu version of IM), though it does not have all of the functionalities of MSN.
If you want to use a camera with the Amsn client supports some cameras http://http://www.amsn-project.net/ here is a link. If you are using Ubuntu sudo apt-get install amsn should install it. As for help with your camera it is probably best to Google it.
