Kubuntu 8.10 skype no mic


Hi everybody, I have just installed kubuntu 8.10. Everything went really smooth, except for the fact that my microphone is not working with skype. It's not mute, I have turned all the "capture" tags on (and tried off of course too) in the mixer, but nothing. I can hear the test voice speaking, but it just will not record my own voice. The mic is fully working, as I can hear it in my Headphones, but there's no way to get it working with skype. Any clues? thanks!

I just installed Ubuntu 8:10 and had the same problem..........it's actually a pretty easy fix all I did was go into skype options then into sound devices and for me I simply changed the sound out and ringing to PULSE and that fixed it for me..........


Hope it helps you.

I have the exact same problem. Does anyone know how to fix it? My skype version is (beta) 2.1.0.47, the Linux version.
My mic worked the first time I tried a call with a friend who was on the same network, and since then the mic doesn't seem to be detected. I'm using the built in mic on my Lenovo laptop.
