Linux Camera Plugin

The camera Plug-in for Scratch on Linux is designed to work out of the box with a wide range of USB webcams. If you are having problems, see this page for help troubleshooting.

Scratch and Squeak

Scratch runs on Squeak, which is written in smalltalk, one of the first object oriented languages. So Scratch is an ‘image’ that runs in a squeak virtual machine built for a particular OS. You can find out more about Squeak and Scratch on our Source Code page.
