    Acer Travelmate Internal Mic not working


    So far I have got to say, Ubuntu is a real pleasure to use. When I remember my earlier attempts (years ago) in Linux the situation is so much better now.

    Anyway one little thing is bothering me and that's the internal microphone in my TravelMate 8104. The speakers worked out of the box, only Skype didn't like them so much, so I installed the PulseAudio stuff ( and indeed Speakers are doing just fine everywhere.
    Now my laptop has two possible input sources, the first one is a simple mic jack and the other one the built-in mic. Unfortunately I don't have an external mic so I have to rely on the built-in one. I already tried different settings (there I have a switch for Front Mic) in my volume control when capture was set to Alsa (which I updated to v1.0.20). In the PulseAudio Volume Control I only have one input device and this clearly is the mic jack (touching it with my headphones jack it gives me signals).

    Now a few bits of information.
    lspci | grep Audi:
    00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 04)
    Ubuntu v9.04

    If you need more information, feel free to request.

    Thanks in advance,
