WebCam not working properly

I am a Newbie and it is possible that this should be in Hardware. I am using Linux - Super OS(Ubuntu). This has just been installed. I have installed a Logitech STX WebCam and in Skype I am only able to see green flickering lines where the image should be. This would seem to be a driver problem. I am quite sure that this problem has been brought up before. Any suggestions or advice as to how I can bring up my ugly face so that my contacts can see me would be appreciated.
Many thanks.
