Skype not working: How to easily give ALSA permission for users for a noob ?


Skype not working: How to easily give ALSA permission for users for a noob ?

I just would like users can skype with usb and alsa.

Is there an easy way ?

thank you !


===========

the weirdest is that for one user it works,
and for the other not

i copied :
cp -a skype ... from the working user to the non working user.
so; that s not in skype folders the prob but towards ALSA

and .asoundrc has been changed too; thats not that the origin

Perhaps a file ownership problem? From non working user directory do this:
chown -R user2:user2 skype
Remember cp -a copies user:group attributes also.

<edit> Also make sure both users are in the same groups (particularly audio group).
