Right click on the speaker icon probabaly in the upper right hand corner, and select "open volume control" check to make sure the mic. volume is turned on, and that the volume is up.

I don't see the icon but I was able to open sound recorder, volume control and alsamixer using applications and have been experimenting with different combinations. I am using soundblaster live and only hear two speakers.

I can't play my guitar!

Thank you. I have the icon now and will keep looking for something unplugged or missing.

you probably want to open volume control, and max out everything that you can see. try a few different devices (under file, change device) All I can suggest, is that you give it a bit of trial and error, and hopefully, eventually you will be able to figure out which device, and which level is your microphone, Sorry I couldn't be more help.
