Not the Edge, but the onboard web cam on a T530 works just fine under all versions of Linux I've tried thus far (Ubuntu, CentOS, Mint, Debian, openSUSE, etc.)

It didn't show it on the Edge 130 by using simpleCV. Or do I have to install anything else?

I think the easiest way to see if your webcam is supported is to try opening it up using [Cheese]( photobooth software. I think it should be installed by default in Ubuntu. If it doesn't show there, then its not a SimpleCV issue and you can probably get more focused help on regular Linux/Ubuntu forums.

It works in cheese (thanks for the hint). Hence it must be a simpleCV-issue.

Well... nuts. I would think that if it works in Cheese, it should be available to anything else polling it. Not sure where to go from here...
