    Re: skype mic not working on Ubuntu 9.10 netbook

    I'm running skype 2.1 beta from Medibuntu, and have installed padevchooser. Still no joy with the mic under skype though. What settings for the mic did you choose, and what version of skype ?

    Thanks.

    Just like it says above http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...25&postcount=2
    uninstall the skype 2.1, install instead 2.0 and select "HD Intel (hw:0)" in Skype's audio settings.

    Running skype on 9.04 (Jaunty) on a Dell Desktop with a USB headset. No problem until yesterday, when medibuntu upgraded to skype 2.1. Lost mic out, all capability to adjust skype audio devices (stuck on 'pulse audio'). Following advice and link from cipicip above, I re-installed skype 2.0 - everything works again.
    I had the same problem (and a few others) when upgrading from 9.04 to 9.10 on this machine and decided to roll back to 9.04. On a Samsung netbook, I run skype with 9.10 Netbook remix, no problems.
    Thanks cipicip

    I also have Acer Aspire One D-150.

    Can't get microphone on skype either.

    2.1 not a chance... does not recognise any "device"
    2.0 displays sound for a second and then totally mutes my computer

    Try this:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libqt4-assistant libqt4-core libqt4-gui libqt4-test skype-common- skype- padevchooser
    wget http://download.skype.com/linux/skype-debian_2.0.0.72-1_i386.deb
    sudo dpkg -i skype-debian_2.0.0.72-1_i386.deb
    rm skype-debian_2.0.0.72-1_i386.deb
    Reboot
    Code:
    alsamixer
    F3
    set all to maximum, and unmute all (pressing m)
    F4
    set all to maximum, choose one of the options if you are given options (probably built-in or external)
    ESC
    Code:
    skype
    Options -> Sound Devices
    Choose the 2nd option for the three choices (in your case should be "HD Intel (hw:0)")
    Uncheck "Allow Skype..."
    Apply
    Make a test sound
    If so sound, sorry.
    If sound, make a test call.

    I am a newbie and I don't know exacly why padevchooser is important... It worked for my AAO-D150.

    For my MIM-2310 it worked after installing padevchooser, though I didn't try hard before installing it... afterwards I removed padevchooser and all the packages it had brought with it, and still it works...

    The following works for me in 9.10

    If, in Skype, the audio options are set to PulseAudio with no other options you need to do the following:

    * Open your sound setting (Right clicking speaker icon top right will do)

    * In sound settings go to input tab and choose your microphone/source there.

    Thanks Revanb - that worked for me. I have just down loaded Skype 2.1.0.47, no mic on the test call, followed your instructions on setting levels, all ok now.

    thanks again,

    Richard
