Irritating little problem.

I have a Logitech B-500 camera. It works fine in Ubuntu 11.10. However, any time I perform an update, I HAVE to reboot the computer in order to get the webcam microphone to work. The camera and audio out does not fail, just the mic. As I said, not a game stopper but it is an irritant. Anyone else have that problem as well as a solution? :)

I had a similar issue with the internal webcam on my wife's laptop.

I had to install the PulseAudio Volume Control:

sudo apt-get install pavucontrol

and then set the defaults for the microphone from there. I don't know why, but the mic always ends up muted after an update.

Thanks but no joy. Problem remains.
