Hi all, I just switched my new laptop completely over to Ubuntu about three days ago. Very excited after too many years of microsoft. I am excited to be in the community.

Ok, one of my first problems has been that my microphoe doesn't seem to be working. I tried the test call on skype and got nothing. I know it worked before I put Ubuntu on, so know the hardware is good.

Can anyone give me some advice about how to go about getting it to work. Please use beginner language, as I am very beginner. I can follow strait directions with the terminal, but I know zero commands off the top of my head!

Thankk
cs

On the panel is a loudspeaker icon
double click it
Edit> Preferences> check all
In Playback and Record check if something is muted
In Option choose Mic or Front mic

Hey, thank you very much! That worked. (With Mic, not Front Mic)

This place is great. My first post, and I have a successful answer within half a day!

Thanks Ringi!
