Smile Web cam compatability

Help! I have family moving to Germany and need a webcam. I'm using latest ubuntu version 10. I want something inexpensive and simple. I'm not that much of a "techie" -- plug in and operate immediately with few complications would be my preference. Thanks for any help/recommendations.

Check out the linuxquestions Hardware Compatibility List. Other compatibility lists can be found using Google. I suspect most of the ones that actually work will be easy to use.

UVC devices are well supported. There's a list of devices that work with the uvcvideo driver here and the Logitech QuickCam Team maintains a list of Logitech UVC devices that you can find here.
