View Full Version : [ubuntu] No mic recording in 8.04

May 10th, 2008, 06:43 PM
I am trying to use ALSA to get my microphone to work under Wine (Ventrilo).

I can confirm that it works (Pulse can record from it, OSS can record from it).

I have installed a PCI sound card and my problem still exists in it (as well as my onboard mobo sound); I can hear myself breathing through the mic but gnome-sound-recorder cannot actually record data with any of the input devices selected. I am convinced that it is a configuration error.

I do not have a .asoundrc file. I do not have any sound servers stealing the devices (Pulse, ESD, etc). ALSA is working, but I don't know how to tell it to record from the microphone.

Can someone please help?

Have you checked 'alsamixer' in your Terminal?
