Default Mic issues with DELL inspiron 1525

My mics (both built-in and external) does not work. I have tried in the past months different 'solutions' unsuccessfully. Any idea how to make it happened? My guess is that somehow the mic is on mute but I cannot control this with kmix nor else. When I rightclick on the sound control at the right bottom of the screen, I have a checked box 'mute' that I cannot uncheck. I run Kubunti 8.10 KDE 4.1.2



Any ideas? Thanks.

Just a thought, but do you have alsa mixer and alsa mixer gui installed?

I've never had much luck fiddling with kmix.

Try the following (taken from the Dell Linux mailing list):

Just to assist anyone using Kubuntu I finally managed to get the mic
working in Kubuntu, KDE that is, 8.04 version.

Here is how:
1. in KMix choose tab Switches
2. in field "Digital Input Source" choose "Digital Mic 1" for built-in mic
3. in field "input source" set "Mic" (I set in all 3 fields)

If you use the front input mic jack then:
2. in field "Digital Input Source" choose "Analogue Inputs"
3. in field "input source" set "Front Mic" (I set in all 3 fields)

under tab "input" you might have to play around with "volumes" for the
sources

Good luck,
Sinclair

Blessings,

Nigel
