Try sudo apt-get install ros-fuerte-brown-perception.

gscam is part of the brown_perception stack.

Maybe try 'sudo apt-get update' first? I must say, I'm not an expert in these things but I got it installed in Groovy this way.

Well, then the problem seems to be fuerte specific. I can't help you there, I'm afraid.

Did you install ROS using apt-get? What do you find if you do 'apt-cache search ros fuerte brown'?

Are you on Oneiric? The brown_perception stack is not building for oneiric under fuerte:
