    Try this. Try this. Use a terminal="Applications->Accessories->Terminal"
    Enter these commands, one line at a time:
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install linux-alsa-driver-modules-$(uname -r)
    Reboot.

    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?

    Skype v2.1b2. It was the only version available on their web site when I downloaded it a few weeks ago.

    1) Open Synaptic Package Mananger from System->Administration
    2) Search for a package with a name like "linux-backports-modules-alsa-karmic-generic" (it will have the name of your distribution, karmic if you have 9.10, lucid if you are running the 10.04 LTS Beta etc.) and mark it for install
    3) Still in Synaptic, search for a package called "pavucontrol" (PulseAudio Volume Control) and mark it for install as well
    4) Hit "Apply" and after the packages have downloaded and installed, reboot linux
    5) Once you log back in, go to Applications->Sound & Video and run "PulseAudio Volume Control"
    6) Click the "Input Devices" tab and you will see your mic but it will have two channels (stereo) a Front Right and Front Left. Well this is just plain wrong! A mic is a mono device, so go ahead and set that Front Right slider all the way to "Silence" (you can leave Front Left at about 80-90%)

    Exit PulseAudio Volume Control and you should now have a working mic in all applications including Skype if you use it.

    Cheers,

    Hank
    Thanks man! it worked like a charm! great howto.

    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.

    Have you disabled the skype setting to allow it to control levels?

    Exclamation Re: Asus Eee 1201n Microphone

    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
