Colors are all messed up (adding "options gspca force_rgb=1" fixed the color problem for Camorama, but not Skype). You should setup ov51x-jpeg-1.5.7 and "sudo modprobe ov51x-jpeg forceblock=1" or "sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/options" add there "options ov51x-jpeg forceblock=1".

ov51x-jpeg-1.5.7 can be found here: I installed the webcam driver using Easycam2.

Microphone works too (maybe you need restart) Skype 2.0.0.72: You should setup ov51x-jpeg (version here: 1.5.8) and "sudo modprobe ov51x-jpeg forceblock=1" or edit /etc/modprobe.d/options and add there "options ov51x-jpeg forceblock=1".

Also setting the autoexpo=0 option when loading the driver can help if the image is really dark. When not running Cairo Dock or running Cairo Dock without Open GL, the C200 with Skype 2.1.0.47 works out of the box.

On Skype 2.2.0.25: make a test call, open pavucontrol, tab Recording, show applications, select USB 0819 as input source for Skype, it will be permanently stored in your ~/.pulse.

For Skype 2.1.0.81 to work with video though, had to go to synaptic package manager and install "libv4l-0" then edit the start menu and/or any links to launch by changing the command from "skype" to "env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1skype" Works out of the box with ekiga, for Skype to work had to setup "gstfakevideo" found @ Skype 2.0.0.72, good video, audio.. Skype 2.1.0.81: fine after running Skype like this from the command prompt: "env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1skype" without the double quotes.

Great price ( onsale.com) Works with Cheese at 1280x1024, 640x480, 352x288, 320x240, 176x144 and 160x120. Plays nicely together with external USB laptop camera for switching cams in both applications. If you don't have that library already installed, install it with "apt-get install libv4l-0" first.
