Use the right arrow key to move to the capture column. Raise the gain level at least past half way with the up arrow key. Press space to add the red L R CAPTUR indication to this column.
Press esc to quit. Try the mic again. HTH
Hi pilotgi, thanks, this worked for me!!!
Do you know if I could have changed this with kmix?
Does anybody know why can't a program like skype check this for me?
Or why would I want L R CAPTUR off as a default?
My solution had been to install another linux distro, opensuse 11.0, so that some things work in 10.3, some in 11, some with ubuntu, etc...,
and my webcam with windows XP, unfortuantely.
Very instructive, but not really the way it should be.
