The camera worked with a small issue in a Citrix Session with HDX Realtime and local without any issue with a installed Skype Client thru custom partition.
To get Microsoft WebCam to work with HDX Realtime and Linux i need to make a small modification to my Citrix webinterface site, see also here: http://blog.cloud-client.info/2012/07/13/using-xenapp-65-or-xendesktop-56-together-with-microsoft-lync-and-igel-linux-based-thin-clients/

Webcam test in the IGEL Linux

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

If you want to check if a webcam works in general in the IGEL Linux, create a terminal session and start the session. Log in as root and type in/execute ls /dev/video* , the result should look like /dev/video0.

If you got no result the webcam will not work, if you got /dev/video0 type in: gst-launch-0.10 v4l2src device=/dev/video0 ! ‘video/x-raw-yuv,width=640,height=480,framerate=30/1’ ! xvimagesink and execute the command. If you have /dev/video1 or similar just change the command parameter to the right value. After the command is executed you should see the video picture from your webcam. Please note: this don’t mean the camera will work with Citrix, VMWare or whatever. This still needs to be tested but it’s a good indicator if the camera will work in general. If this fails, you can still try/use USB redirection of course.
