microphone dead in skype


I was running Mint 17, but bought new PC and installed 17.1. Sound works fine, and I can record sound. But I cannot send through Skype.

I have been Playing with suggestions found in Google. There has been no response in the Mint and Skype forums. It may be specifically a Skype problem and this is not the place to ask. But it is worth a try.

The libasound2-plugins were installed with Mint. I am using the latest version of Skype for Linus 4.3.0.37.

Since most of my family lives in other countries, Skype is pretty important.

Thanks for all suggestions.

similar to mine:
Code:
System:    Host: my-kungfu Kernel: 3.13.0-37-generic x86_64 (64 bit) Desktop: Xfce 4.11.8
           Distro: Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca
Audio:     Card-1 Intel 7 Series/C210 Series Family High Definition Audio Controller driver: snd_hda_intel
           Card-2 NVIDIA GK106 HDMI Audio Controller driver: snd_hda_intel
           Sound: Advanced Linux Sound Architecture v: k3.13.0-37-generic
IDK what the hell I'm using as I have front and rear jacks. I guess my Video Card came with an audio chip?
Here's a screenie of my skype settings for Sound Devices.

You may wish to move or rename the ~/.Skype directory. Shutdown skype first.

How was it installed exactly?

I have these packages installed:
Code:
sudo dpkg -l libasound2-plugins
...
||/ Name                    Version          Architecture     Description
+++-=======================-================-================-====================================================
ii  libasound2-plugins:amd6 1.0.27-2ubuntu2  amd64            ALSA library additional plugins
ii  libasound2-plugins:i386 1.0.27-2ubuntu2  i386             ALSA library additional plugins

Thanks Habitual and beachboy2

Yes, I found that those plugins were necessary, but they both are installed. Sooo... the problem has to be other.

I installed Skype using Package manager. Did the same earlier with Mint 17, and had no problems. But this time...
