    I assume that the webcam is built into the laptop?? Is it recognised - see if it is shown in dmesg - for example it get the following for my USB based cam:

    usb 5-2: New USB device found, idVendor=05a9, idProduct=0518
    usb 5-2: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
    usb 5-2: Product: USB Camera
    usb 5-2: Manufacturer: OmniVision Technologies, Inc.
