Hi Mary,

Just got your message on the answering machine - and sorry no one 
has replied to your post re webcams...

Unfortunately - I need to know a little more about Global Cam - ie 
what is the specific model number? brand / manufacturer... any info 
on this would help.

Next in your kDE control centre under the  peripherals tab - there 
is a digital camera option. In the right pane - you will see a 
little camera icon at the top - click this and a dialogue box will 
appear - this box is magical - in that - it shows you a list of all 
cameras that work under linux.

Usually usb cameras - if supported - will work.

With respect to kghostview - I am not a fan - I suggest when viewing 
the attachments - you right click - and choose open with - then type 

xpdf is a better pdf viewer for the linux system - in that 95% of 
the time it works for most pdfs.

(yeah flame me!)
