Usb microphone with Linux Mint
I was using Fedora with Pulseaudio, and my usb cam/microphone was working fine. Now I'm using Linux Mint 14.1, and I haven't been able to get the microphone working yet. The microphone is recognized though. Pulseaudio is running. However when I run alsamixer, I see a lot of mixers instead of the 3 mixers I had with pulseaudio in Fedora.
I included two screenshots, alsamixer for "capture view" and gui mixer for gnome/cinnamon. Linux sees it through lsusb as well.
The GUI mixer is not detecting any input from the usb microphone nor does skype.
