    Microphone works in some but not all applications

    Converted my brother into an Ubuntu user, hurrah!!

    He now has 12.04 installed on his Acer Aspire One mini laptop.

    Microphone problem: No options appear under Input in Sound Settings.

    So something like Skype is not working BUT Sound Recorder works perfectly.


    Posting as absolute beginner because I still am & you would have to spell it out for me


    Edit: Problem only with built in mic, external works just fine with everything.

    Are you saying no options appear under input in the skype settings or in the system settings of ubuntu?

    Thank you for replying. I mean in Ubuntu's Sound Settings. So for the whole system.
    Yet when I record in Sound Recorder, the "Applications" tab registers the action.

    "So something like Skype is not working BUT Sound Recorder works perfectly."

    Try Mumble instead. If it works, then rage at Microsoft because they don't want to fix Skype.

    edit: why are you using 11.04? It's EOL now.
