View Full Version : [kubuntu] mic does not work!

Removed pulse audio coz it had a million performance issues and now cant get the mic working in Kubuntu 10.10 + KDE4.6. Attached the alsainfo.. any help would be great. Else i will reinstall the OS which takes about 30 mins and is much easier alternative.

It is a bad idea to remove pulseaudio, for a start, so either put it back or start again if it is only a 30 minute job, as pa is an integral part of the whole sound system now.

If you can still not get it working, try alsamixer in terminal to see if the mic is muted, as well as the pulseaudio volume control

with pulse + skype i can get anything else working. It hogs up memory so bad.

when you removed pulse did you restart your system, also at restart kde will ask a question via a dialog, did you click yes ?
