  Logitec (Webcam)
  Mint (older version)
  Works fine with some minor problems
What doesn't work:

Salvaged from an MS system. The manufacturer stated that neither Linux nor Mac were supported. In fact, Skype couldn't recognize it in Mint 12 Lisa.

What was done to make it work:

I managed to put it to work with Skype using v4l2ucp and a few tweaks, as shown in the tutorial: «How to make Webcam compatible with Skype» (by frankeinstein).

Additional notes:

It works. The picture from this device is... as poor as in the native ms windows environment!
