skype audio problems

I have an ASUS eec901 Linux version with Jolicloud installed.
When I dial Skype contacts I can hear and see them but THEY just get static with no picture or audible voice.
Skype informs me that I must chnage my settings from Pulse audio to ALSA using a program called pavucontrol. I must delete Pulse audio, but although i have tried I can see no way to do this.Pavu control does not seem to install either.
Can anyone help please?

You don't have delete Pulseaudio server because of skype. Skype 2.1 works with pulseaudio fine. What is version of Skype?
