Skype & Acer Aspire One (ZG5) [Solved]

Post by sespela » Tue Apr 05, 2011 4:30 pm

Hi,
I have a problem with Skype, as most other people, the mic don't work, eventhough it works in the Soundrecorder.
I've searched around a bit and tried figuring out how to make it work.
I'm using LMDE btw. Any other Acer Aspire One users who have encountered the same problem? And what worked for you?

I've read several places I should check the volume and that there is no mute on. I have done this, and I have also disabled the "Allow Skype to automatically adjust my mixer levels" option.
Some places I read I should check the hardware options.
This is my hardware options.
This is my hardware options.

Several people have reported that Skype issues have been solved after removing PulseAudio.
How To: Completely remove PulseAudio & replace it with ALSA
