Re: The microphone is not working

The rm did work indeed.

Re: The microphone is not working

I think it's all working now. It's late and I'm off to bed! Plus, I don't want to run the risk of discovering something wrong by testing all apps. :D

I'm grateful. You spend a lot of time sorting things out. I wished I could repay you.

Have a good night! (I have no idea where you are on the globe)

Re: The microphone is not working

It is indeed strange. When I run sudo rm ~/.config/pulse , it says rm: cannot remove '/home/dorje/.config/pulse': Is a directory Did I type in something wrong? (a detail is Internal Microphone is no longer qualified as "plugged in" or "unplugged") After a reboot, messenger is working & online tests ...

Re: The microphone is not working

This did something: Input Devices shows "internal microphone (unplugged)" by default. The volume bar does move when I speak, and Skype & Zoom record my voice! Online tests do not record and neither does Messenger, I would imagine because of permission restrictions. Messenger says, "An Error occured ...

Re: The microphone is not working

I have a single port, it's unlikely I will ever plug a microphone in, and my headphone is almost always plugged in. I don't understand either why it shows a microphone is plugged in and internal mic unplugged. The headphone has a single jack that plugs into the computer and I don't use a splitter of...

Re: The microphone is not working

A step closer again, I can change the output volume with the keyboard. It shows "headphones (plugged in)" instead of "dummy output." Input device is now "microphone (plugged in)" and there are "internal microphone (unplugged)" and "line in (unplugged)" in the combobox. The mic doesn't work on online...

Re: The microphone is not working

As you guessed, pulseaudio still doesn't work.

There's only Linux Mint on this machine.

Re: The microphone is not working

Hi Tobari, and welcome to the forum. Are you asking about the internal microphone, or a plugged in microphone? I understand what is showing as available, but which one are you hoping to use? Let's also see the output of pacmd list-cards please. Hi, thanks for your reply and your welcome. I'm asking...

The microphone is not working

Hi, I've recently installed Linux Mint 19.3 (Cinnamon, 64-bit) on a laptop (HP EliteBook 840 G3). I'm a complete newbie. The microphone is not working. In the sound settings, the input level is such: https://i.ibb.co/FBwtMs7/Screenshot-from-2020-06-05-15-45-26.png In the "input devices" tag of pavuc...
