Better webcam support

Registered by Markus Majer on 2006-12-05

Improving the support of webcams in Ubuntu Linux.

There are only few webcams supported in Linux, and these who are supported, are often difficult to use for non-technical users in programs like Kopete or Gaim (which also doesnt support that by default in the version used in the current release).

1. Try to get the manufacturers to support Linux.
2. Better including of webcam support
