pavucontrol (alsamixer?) configuration with skype


Whenever i start skype (i know...but it's all my parents can cope with), it fails to pick up the webcam microphone.

The work-round is to open pavucontrol, "recording" tab;
change device from "Built-in Audio Analog Stereo" to the webcam ("Webcam C270 Analog Mono")

But doing this manually, every time, is just so clunky...surely there MUST be some setting, or config file, that would give me a one-time fix...?

Thx

The system-wide configuration files are in /etc/pulse ; the personal ones are in $HOME/.config/pulse

have not looked into it, but it seems to be possible.

go to pavucontrol configuration tab:

for device 'Built-in Audio' change setting in drop-down menu from 'Analog Stereo Duplex' to 'Analog Stereo Playback'

this will disable Built-in Audio recording device in Pulseaudio

assuming no other recording devices, Pulseaudio can only use webcam recording device for Skype
