Proper PulseAudio installation for KUbuntu 10.4, (Reinhold Rumberger)
I, too, have been having trouble with skype. I have enough gnome
installed that I don't think I can remove pulseaudio and have to
figure out how to make it play nice with KDE and skpye.

I think I suggested previously that you will need to experiment with the mixer controls in KMix to find the correct settings. It took me quite a while to find the right settings on my laptop but I did eventually.

Note that the names of the sliders in KMix may be misleading, so try everything and see what it does. If it might help I can send you a screen grab of my mixer settings to give you an idea.

That didn't do anything for me. KMix already had everything enabled.
But see below...

That solved it! Even thought kmix had turned everything on, pulse had
muted my mic. I simply unmuted it and I can use skype again.
