A real newbie (2 days old) I just installed Linux Mint KDE 3.5.8. Firefox 2.0 works fine and faster than on XP. I have installed successfully Skype 2.0 for Linux but cannot configure the sound and video for Skype. The test call does not work. My laptop is an Acer 7720 equipped with an Acer cristal eye webcam. Skype works perfectly on Windows XP. I will appreciate any help as I would like to migrate from Windows to Linux.

does your mic work with other applications, such as sound recorder?
in other words...is this a problem with just skype, or your mic.

You might have to set up your webcam. And IIRC Skype is still beta in Linux...
