Along with the rest of the world, I joined google plus right after invitations became available last night. I was able to use my webcam for their hangouts, now I cannot. When I checked lshw I can't find the webcam on the slot it was in last night.

Relevant system info: OS: ubuntu 10.04 System model: Dell Inspiron 1525 lshw snippets:
