Microphone cannot be unmuted

Postby petertsun on Thu Aug 30, 2012 4:51 pm

I installed linux mint debian on a Pentium III 1 GHz computer with 512 MB ram.
I also installed creative sound blaster audigy SE.
I tried to use recordMyDesktop, but there is no
audio recording. I opened up the sound preferences
and unmuted the microphone, but the CA0106 (alsa mixer)
did not allow the microphone to be unmuted.

Why is the microphone remained unmuted?
What can be done to get the mic working?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Is the microphone just blocked on mute, or is it not recognised at all?
I have the latter problem namely... ( viewtopic.php?f=196&t=117549 )
