I have been using linux for years but my experience with trouble shooting is looking up stuff on the Internet, copying lines of code I don't understand and smile if it works.
I'm having a hard time trying to get my mic to work, on Audacity every option leads me to record playback. I have installed a bunch of programs that lead me nowhere, Qasmixer, HDAjackRetask, Echomixer, others and more tools that didn't help.
All options I try on pulse lead me to the same result.
If I knew how to use what I installed, maybe it could lead me to my solution, but you probably guessed it, I'm walking in unknown territory.
Your help would be very welcome
Here's my inxi
