Fixed sound recording issue for Dell laptop

Postby rlbarket06 » Tue Oct 28, 2008 2:50 pm

In the past I have used Ubuntu, and then I upgraded to Mint 5 XFCE and have had trouble getting my microphone to record. After many hours of searching to no avail, I discovered that the problem was that the microphone capture had been turned off by default, and that xfce4-mixer has no setting for this. By installing gnome-alsamixer, I was able to active sound capture.

Is there some other work around that I could have used within the native XFCE applications (other than a terminal command)?

I'll pass this on to merlwiz79
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
