Why do you need pwc? The camera is supported by the uvcvideo driver. Which problems are you having now?

in ubuntu maverick I had to many issues with pulse audio and skype. It is well documented in the skype forum. since I use skype a lot. I uninstalled pulse. and use only the alsa system. this may not help you. but. as I test all the new pulse stuff and maintain some pulse packages for some of my friends I find pulse to be a pain.
that said pulse is a layer that uses alsa I will instruct how to capture your mic for alsa.
open a terminal and

1.type alsamixer
now
Quote:
2. push the F4 button
use the left and right arrows keys and move to input
Quote:
3. use your up and down arrow to change to mic
now use the arrow key to move to capture
Quote:
4. use the up key to turn it up
use the arrow key to move to mic
Quote:
5. use the up key to turn it up
use the arrow key and move to mic boost
Quote:
6. use the up key to turn it up
now press F5
Quote:
7. move the arrow key to the volume and turn it up
press the Esc key you are done with alsa.
Quote:
8. in the terminal type pavucontrol
if you do not have it.then do this below
this.
Quote:
In terminal:

sudo apt-get install pavucontrol

pavucontrol


Then:

* Click the "input devices" tab. Click the lock icon to unlock channels. Set the front right channel to silence.if using the rear jacks.

You misunderstood. The OP referred to Windows (presumably) as the "unmentionable OS". I was simply pointing out that there's nothing wrong with mentioning Windows explicitly.

I was under the impression (from other threads) that I needed pwc. Think I'll go back to pre-101 ... sorry.

I'm working on getting Skype to work and sound to work. I'm going to try Drakeo's suggestion (below) next.

Then I'll move onto Skype.

By the way, thank you to you and Drakeo for all your help.

I was trying to adhere to: "Then if. please if at any time you need to mention M$. put it in general. at the risk of sounding rude but not meant to be. I will not waist my time on reading about M$.
your cam is well document and supported by the kernel."

So, I referred to it as the "unmentionable OS".

In the meantime, I have followed Drakeo's directions and configured alsa. I uninstalled Skype and will reinstall it next. My "microphone" is contained within the Webcam. I imagine this would be the "USB Device" instead of the default microphone?

Nylex I agree to disagree you are a very nice person that cares. From the amount of posts you are a very special Linux user for this forum and your help has been above and beyond most. keep up the great help. M$ has enough google space. It is only my point of view not the view of the Guru or root.
we will save this for another thread. I am sure M$ we will keep it in general.

alsa / pavucontrol

I get video on my Skype "options" now.

I've done the alsa/pavucontrol steps Drakeo outlined. However, in the pavucontrol screen, under the "Configuration" tab, what should be in the "Internal Audio" profile?

I have "Analog Stereo Output+Digital Stereo (IEC958) Input there now and still have no sound.

OK ... changed it to "Analog Stereo Duplex" and I am now getting sound.

The skype issue and Pulse Audio problem has been around a long time. That is why in skype pulse audio forum for now you understand why I uninstalled pulse audio in Kubuntu 10.10 it was to much of a problem. and it is per machine per hardware. I am not telling you to uninstall. But pulse audio and skype
are a real problem skype is not a open source program so there is no way to fix it through us the open source community. Skype for linux is written to alsa. I use skype all the time and that is why on my testing Kubuntu system I got rid of Pulse and installed alsa libraries.
some day skype may want to fix it.
and Pulseaudio is just a sound server that reads alsa .
This is the big reason why slackware builds we are no longer maintaining pulseaudio.
