So, on both of the computers I installed Ubuntu 8.10 audio playback is fine, but capture with a mic for Skype or Sound Recorder does not work. I was able to open Alsa equilizer, and check a few things, and then change the capture in sound properties on one computer, and somehow now sound capture works fine with a mic in the mic jack. Now on my Dell m600 laptop I can't capture audio with the built in mic. Any idea how to get this to work? Seems like this needs some work.
