Review of Linux Compatibility
The Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 is often mixed up with the similar looking Logitech Webcam Pro 9000. Unfortunately, the QuickCam Pro 9000 is not fully supported by Linux, hence it can have severe consequences if the two versions are mixed up.
The Logitech Wecam Pro 9000 has the USB ID 046d:0809
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 046d:0809 Logitech, Inc. Webcam Pro 9000
while the Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 die USB ID 046d:0990
Bus 005 Device 007: ID 046d:0990 Logitech, Inc.
The QuickCam Pro 9000 has a firmware error. Due to a timing problem the camera runs instable under Linux (see http://www.ideasonboard.org/uvc/#footnote-6″>UVC footnote). The error depends on the hardware setup of the PC and has not necessarily appear at each configuration. Nontheless, it is not recommended to use this webcam with Linux.
The webcam is automatically initialized by the kernel:

Together with the camera also the microphone will be activated:
