You can't just say "a logitech camera" here. say which kind of camera. the 
"kind" means the driver that has to be used with it. That means that 
"Logitech" isn't a kind of camera, but PWC (Philips) is. I know that UVC 
cameras don't work with GridFlow because V4L2 isn't supported by GridFlow 
and V4L1 isn't supported by UVC. Before PWC there were the QC-USB cameras, 
of which you have at least one (perhaps a bunch) and we already used the 
parallel port QuickCam in the nineties, so that makes 4 completely 
different drivers (qce-ga was the only former name of the qc-usb driver).
