Camera Module (Operating System)

Hi, I am new in this world of RPi. I bought the raspberry pi 2 and the camera module. I want to know if there is a way to use this camera module with some of the operating systems of Linux (for example Ubuntu mate). I have watched too many tutorials but they explain with Raspbian.

My question is: Can I use the camera module with ubuntu Mate? If it is possible. Which commands do I need to use in the ubuntu terminal, to set up this camera.

If somebody could help me, I’ll very grateful.

Thanks. Pura Vida!!!

there is an application called cheese. Start it and see if it recognises the camera.
