View Full Version : [all variants] External microphone not working on Dell Inspiron 1520

September 22nd, 2011, 02:00 PM
I'm trying to get an external mic to work on my computer. There is an option in Kmix and in alsamixer to change input source between "Mic in" and "Line in". Regardless of what I set this to, Ubuntu records from my computers internal mic and will not listen to the line in. I have tried all combinations of volume settings in alsamixer as well. I am running Kubuntu 10.04 LTS 64-bit. Any idea what to do?
