I have a Sony Vaio TZ  (a VGN-TZ18GN) that has been pushing its luck
and is about to be unceremoniously disenvista'd.

Does anyone know if the built-in camera works under Linux, in
particular Ubuntu 8.04?

Or better, has anyone done this installation (even on a similar
machine) and if so were there any unexpected gotchas?
