Skype not working - internal microphone problems


Hi,

I have CentOS 6.3 on a Lenovo E520 thinkpad. I have installed Skype but couldn't make the internal microphone work. I have played around with alsamixer, pavucontrol to no avail. Can someone tell me, a linux system administration novice, how to fix this and get the microphone working. The relevant output (lspci, uname -r) requested in the instruction thread is:

[root@es520 modprobe.d]# /sbin/lspci

[root@es520 modprobe.d]# uname -r

Can someone please help me? Is there any other forum that this question is more relevant to?

Please post a screen snapshot of what the Sound Devices panel looks like in your Skype software.

Have you tried checking the box labeled "Allow Skype to adjust your mixer levels" ?

I managed to solve this problem by downloading pavucontrol, and then following the instructions here.
