Finally an Ubuntu Webcam

Once I got it working I was amazed at how easy it would have been if I had the proper instructions. Even the Ubuntu site does not work well for this but here are the steps I followed to get it working.

Updated /etc/apt/sources.list with:

deb unstable main
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install easycam2 webcam-server

I then selected yes and installed dependencies and ram the program:

sudo webcam-server -p 88

I then went to my browser and typed http://ipaddress:88, and I saw a snap shot.
