Further to this, the app-on-linux thing is the result of Skype not having video capability on linux yet. They're working on it apparently. The driver was relatively straightforward, although it wasn't installed in Ubuntu by default. I had to pull the UVC driver source from svn, build the module and insert it into the running kernel, like this:
- $ svn checkout http://svn.berlios.de/svnroot/repos/linux-uvc/
- $ cd linux-uvc/linux-uvc/trunk
- $ make
- $ sudo make install
