I am using the microphone of my logitech webcam. I am using kubuntu 11.04 and skype 188.8.131.52. The video works but not the microphone. I have tried it with another program (Audacity) and it works.
When I go to the skype options, I just see PulseAudio server. I can click on the "Open PulseAudio Volume Control" but the microphone does not work with skype.
Thank you for your help,
Hey, I did find that Google Talk which has a similar video/audio capability to Skype does recognize my video and audio from my USB camera. If I cannot get Skype to work I may go to Google Talk for my Linux system.. Of course that means all my family that I usually Skype will now have to Google instead, so this isn't an ideal solution.
1) install and run pavucontrol sudo apt-get install pavucontrol
2) start test call in your skype (call to Echo/Sound Service)
3) in pavucontrol window choose tab "Recording" and for skype settings choose one of your device
try different devices
