Making builtin webcam driver work for Ubuntu HP laptop

Thank you Universe and bitbucket.org.

After trying a lot of solutions mentioned over links found on internet, I could see the webcam work using the instructions mentioned at below link:


$ sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-dev libusb-dev build-essential gcc automake mercurial
 $ hg clone http://bitbucket.org/ahixon/r5u87x/
 $ cd r5u87x
 $ make
 $ sudo make install
 $ sudo r5u87x-loader --reload
