Anyone knows how to link Raspberry pi to Kinect camera?

or can recommend a webcam.

I recently tried a logitech linux-compatible, but couldn't install it on the debian

Does it work for you? Couldn't get it to work, and so did many other users who posted replies to that page –  echad Apr 24 '13 at 14:04

If you want to use video there is a driver in the kernel!

modprobe videodev
modprobe gspca_main
modprobe gspca_kinect

You get a new /dev/videoX and can use it like any other webcam!

For depth you need another driver which can be found here: https://github.com/xxorde/librekinect

Both work well on the current Raspbian
