    Re: Acer Travelmate Internal Mic not working

    Karmic Koala:

    It might not even be necessary to do everything I did but here is what worked for me:

    edit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
    add line
    Code:
    options snd-hda-intel model=6stack-digout
    at the very end.

    Install the following packages:
    Code:
    padevchooser
    libsdl1.2debian-all
    asoundconf-gtk
    I also installed ubuntu-restricted-extras but I'm fairly certain that this is not important for the issue.

    Reboot

    Start Applications -> Sound & Video -> PulseAudio Device Chooser

    You will see an icon appearing in your notification area (looks like a cable), click on it and choose Volume Control, tab Input Devices. I chose Port: Microphone 2 and everything worked (Skype, Record Audio).

    There's another solution regarding internal mic and Skype here:

    Basically, install and run pavucontrol then drag one of the mic input channels (L/R) down to zero. Suddenly pulseaudio has input from the internal mic.

    I just updated to Lucid. Since the alsa-base.conf got overwritten in the context internal mic was down again. Adding the line described above again everything seems to work out nicely.
