recording in linux


my audio card is recognized, i can hear sound normaly, when i plug in a mic, then select it in gnome-volume-control, i can hear my voice played back on the computer's speakers. but when i try to record it's a different story, i have tried:

jokosher 0.9
sweep
audacity
ardour

and nothing works, it doesn't record.

i really don't know what command to post so please let me know what you need.

I am not familiar with gnome but see if on your audio sound control panel under input there is a capture switch and if so turn it on and set the control to maximum.

Glad you were able to solve your problem so easy. I still have windows on my computer but have not booted for about a month. Wife uses it about once a day for her photo printing.
