Onboard Camera - Not Working - Linx1010b

Hi, I am running Ubuntu Mate 19.04 on a low end Linx 1010b. The experience is really good now I have dealt with the basic problems. One thing I am struggling with is the onboard camera, this I cannot get working I have googled the problem but drawn a blank?

Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0bda:8176 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188CUS 802.11n WLAN Adapter
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0603:0002 Novatek Microelectronics Corp. 
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 05e3:0608 Genesys Logic, Inc. Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

From this lsusb output I am not sure if the camera is listed!

The articles I have read so far suggest it may be at Kernel level, in that the camera is not yet supported for this device.

However, as this community is always extremely helpful I am hoping one of you might help me succeed in my quest.

Thanks.

I did some looking, it doesn't seem like anyone has had success getting the camera going on Linux. It has even given some people issues on Windows. But if there is a way, I'm sure one of the great resources we have on the forum may be able to finagle it.

Since it's not identified as a USB camera, is it seen as PCI?

Knowing the vendor/chipset of the camera will help aid research if the same camera has been successfully installed on other products.
