    No microphone in 10.04

    (maybe the same in 9.04+ even)

    on windows, my card is a Realtek HDA ALC883
    on Mac, its just Intel HDA ALC883 (probably same on *nix)

    On a complete install of ubunutu, I have audio that outputs fine to analog front speakers and the digital optical port. I have no input devices though :/

    My idea was to compile or somehow install realtek's drivers from their site. Assistance?

    Simple one, but just in case, have you checked System -> Preferences -> Sound to see if the Mic is muted. It was on my install. Would also recommend you download Gnome-Alsamixer. Hope this helps.

    Thanks.
    Had the same problem and Gnome-Alsamixer did the trick.

    Idk what I checked but whatever it was (maybe Prefernces > Sound) it had no input devices shown, whereas it had Output devices shown.

    Can you post the output of these terminal commands for me please:
    Code:
    uname -a
    aplay -l
    cat /proc/asound/version
    head -n 1 /proc/asound/card*/codec#*
    Terminal="Applications->Accessories->Terminal"
    Please post text output using code tags. Also helpful is the make/model of your PC/Laptop.

    Hmm. That's it?? Guess you'll have a problem with this. Using a Terminal="Applications->Accessories->Terminal"
    Open this file for editing:
    Code:
     gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
    Insert this line at the bottom:
    Code:
     options snd-hda-intel model=acer
    Save. Close. Reboot. Check your levels in alsamixer.
    Code:
     alsamixer
    Press F6 to select the correct soundcard.
    Press F3 to show playback levels. F4 selects capture levels [or use <Tab>]
    Use the left/right arrow keys to select and up/down arrow keys to change levels.
    Go to "System>Preferences>Sound" and make sure the correct soundcard is default.
