GtkCamShot software is a webcam snapshot utility. It is a quick hack which shows you the view from your webcam, updating ever half-second. There's a simple button for saving images on the main window.
To build the source you'll need several libraries installed.
If you're running Debian GNU/Linux just run :
apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev libimlib2-dev giblib-dev
To use this you'll need a Webcam which is supported by the Linux kernel's videodev API.
I use a Philips PWC camera, and it works just fine via /dev/video0
