Re: Solution for not working microphone under Ubuntu 11.10

I have Linux Mint 13 on my laptop system.  I know how to get to Terminal, but have never used it. 

 

Can you give a complete step-by-step on how to do the above fix for my microphone?  I don't know how or where to insert the code you mention.

Re: Solution for not working microphone under Ubuntu 11.10

When I downloaded the latest version of skype I found that my microphone wasn't working.  When i investigated audio settings I found that the microphone setting had changed to 'externai mic' so I altered that back to 'internal mic' and Hey Presto, it was working again!!  Hope this is helpful.   Susan

Careful. Issuing this killall pulseaudio in Ubuntu 12.4 has now removed ALL my sound hardware list in my Sound Settings. I have no sound or microphone now... :sad:

Ubuntu 13.04 x64. Kernel: 3.8.0-32-generic. Notebook: Lenovo Ideapad Z580A.

After updating to 4.2.0.11 the microphone is lost! All other features work normally.

I try the version from Skype download - the result is the same! Sound settings in Skype are unchangable.

I test my microphone with Audacity. It works normally!

Starting Skype in terminal causes backtrace:

================================================================

:~$ skype
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "overlay-scrollbar"
`menu_proxy_module_load': skype: undefined symbol: menu_proxy_module_load

After this login screen is apeared. And no enother messages in terminal.

Re: Solution for not working microphone under Ubuntu 11.10

For me the problem is solved using solution in http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=801643 1. Install pavucontrol PulseAudio Volume Control by sudo apt-get install pavucontrol 2. Run pavucontrol and select microphone as default input. If required tune mic. level. 3. Perform Skype calls. It works.
