Ubuntu 1.10 & Skype Problem


Prior to upgrading to Ubuntu 1.10 yesterday, Skype worked fine. Post upgrading, skype able to locate webcam but unable to detect mic (Logitech webcam and mic) and when hovering over skype icons the text is blank. I have removed skype and reinstalled via Ubuntu Software Centre as well as installing Quantus Plus from Synaptic Package Manager to no avail. I have tried using Google Video but video quality is poor. My knowledge on programming code is non-existent. Advice greatly appreciated.

Hi J-P and welcome to LQ! Have you checked your mixer since you upgraded? Sometimes an upgrade results in the mixer setting being set to zero and you need to manually readjust them. Look at the mic capture settings in particular and see if they are appropriately set.

Setting up your system does not really involve any knowledge of programming code so no need to worry.
