Enter these commands, one line at a time:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install linux-alsa-driver-modules-$(uname -r)
The original solution worked for me as well, but I had to have GNOME Alsa Mixer installed as well. Random, but at least it's working now. Sheesh.
Yeah, I still can't get it to work. Since the only application for which the mic won't work is Skype, I'm just going to dump Skype and try Google Talk on Empathy instead... It can do video chat, right?
What version of skype are you using?
web site when I downloaded it a few weeks ago.
This does work for me on my EEE PC 1201n. However, about 15 seconds into any conversation the left channel goes back to 100% entirely on its own. It also resets itself to be locked with the right channel. I've tested this in both Ubuntu 10.10 and Linux Mint with the same results.
Interestingly, if I use a Bluetooth headset I end up having the same issues about 15 seconds into any conversation whether it be on Skype or Google Talk.
I've tryed all the sollutions without success.
I can record soud but the mic dont work on skype or gtalk
I'm running in a 11.04 ubuntu.
Anyone can help-me?
Sorry for my bad english
I had the same microphone issue in skype on ubuntu 11.04. however, i could not apply the fix because no left/right channels were shown for the microphone. they do exist. until i chose to 'show all except monitors', however, i could not see them. THIS FIX WORKS IN UBUNTU 11.04 TOO but it seems pulseaudio volume control interface has been reworked from previous major release. hope this helps
