Default sound with skype

Thanks to all who have tried to help me with my problem. The reason
I haven't replied sooner is that I was experimenting with all
possible ways to get the microphone to work.The bottom line is that
it still isn't working. It must have something to do with my
configuration (or lack of). I'll list what I have tried, as I said
without success, and not necessarily did I try things in the order
written.

I checked out my kmix configurations. There is mike 1 and mike 2 -
none worked.

I even changed my OB sound card to a creative ensoniq pci one.

I uninstalled pulseaudio and the played around with various
configurations.

With all of the above I tried using the mike with skype and
audacity.

I guess it can't be the mike itself because it works in Windows.

So I remain confused and frustrated.

Hi Errol,



I use Skype with a Logitech 9000 usb web cam and under Multimedia
setting Phonon audio recording,

Recording, I changed the audio recording preference from Internal
audio to QuickCam Pro 9000

and Audio is working.

Thanks Mark. I opened the kmix and am now starting to play with
various combinations of hardware and setting possibilities.
Meanwhile to no avail. The sound can be heard but no microphone.
Will continue to experiment and report but my feeling is that
the whole configuration is wrong. Maybe "pulseaudio server
(local)" which is the only option I have in skype for sound
isn't correct. I don't know.

When I try to open kmix the icon bounces for a few

re-installing & rebooting but no change. Looks like
my problem is there.

I can control the speaker volume from the icon on the
panel, but no kmix.

Now what?

The most useful information would be to try
recording with something else, like audacity. This
will tell you if it's a Skype problem or if you
just need to select an appropriate input in KMix.

There are still possibilities… it could be the kernel driver for your sound card might need some tweaking, can you send the output of
lspci -k
and we'll see if there's anything we can find out.
These things can be very frustrating and confusing when they don't work, especially when pulseaudio is introduced into the mess. But if we work from the bottom up we should be able to track down the problem.

These things can be very frustrating and confusing when they

I even changed my OB sound card to a creative ensoniq pci

I uninstalled pulseaudio and the played around with various

With all of the above I tried using the mike with skype and
audacity.

I guess it can't be the mike itself because it works in
Windows.

So I remain confused and frustrated.

Default sound with skype

OK there are two possibilities that spring to mind, let's try the easy one first

First, start Skype and make sure the option 'Allow Skype to automatically adjust my mixer levels' is NOT checked. This is very important.

Now, sometimes pulseaudio chooses the wrong input as the default input

Open a terminal and type 'alsamixer'
Hit F4 to see the recording inputs
One of them will be chosen as the current capture input - it'll have the word 'CAPTURE' in red underneath it.
In the mixer you use the left and right arrow keys to select a control, up and down to change the levels, and space to select which one is the current capture input.
Try changing the inputs and messing around with the levels and see if you can get Skype or Audacity to record anything.

If that fails, then you may need to go into Kmix, open the mixer, from the menu choose 'Settings->Audio Setup' and then the 'Audio Hardware Setup' Tab.
This couldn't be more confusing if they tried but you have to:
Choose the correct sound card (probably 'Internal Audio')
Choose a profile (Analogue Stereo Duplex)
Choose Sound Device: Recording-Internal Audio Analogue Stereo
Then you may be able to select different inputs from 'Connector' - things like 'Internal Microphone' or 'Analogue Microphone'
You'll get a level meter when you do this. If you can see it moving then try 'Apply'ing those settings and try Skype again

Default sound with skype

Mark these are the results of your suggestions and I think may point
to the problem

The stage on of your solution provided no solution.

When I opened kmix I was able to go to settings>audio setup. In
audio setup there is no audiohardware setup tab or tree. The only
two tabs are "device preference" and "backend".¬* Maybe that's where
the problem is?

First, start Skype and make sure the option 'Allow Skype to automatically adjust my mixer levels' is NOT checked. This is very important.

Now, sometimes pulseaudio chooses the wrong input as the default input

Open a terminal and type 'alsamixer'
Hit F4 to see the recording inputs
One of them will be chosen as the current capture input - it'll have the word 'CAPTURE' in red underneath it.
In the mixer you use the left and right arrow keys to select a control, up and down to change the levels, and space to select which one is the current capture input.
Try changing the inputs and messing around with the levels and see if you can get Skype or Audacity to record anything.

If that fails, then you may need to go into Kmix, open the mixer, from the menu choose 'Settings->Audio Setup' and then the 'Audio Hardware Setup' Tab.
This couldn't be more confusing if they tried but you have to:
Choose the correct sound card (probably 'Internal Audio')
Choose a profile (Analogue Stereo Duplex)
Choose Sound Device: Recording-Internal Audio Analogue Stereo
Then you may be able to select different inputs from 'Connector' - things like 'Internal Microphone' or 'Analogue Microphone'
You'll get a level meter when you do this. If you can see it moving then try 'Apply'ing those settings and try Skype again

MARK (and others). IT WORKS!! Sorry for shouting but after such a
long time trying I just had to shout. Thanks for all your help.
What I did was play around in Skype with the various options for
Microphone devices and suddenly one of then allowed me to hear my
voice in the skype test call.


It certainly was your time and effort that put me on the track.


Thanks again

Default sound with skype

If you've got no audio device config in KDE and Skype is giving you microphone options, this implies you've somehow managed to kill off pulseaudio. Which is not necessarily a bad thing but might be the root of the original problem. In any case it works so I would stop messing with it

Open a terminal and type 'alsamixer'
Hit F4 to see the recording inputs
One of them will be chosen as the current capture input - it'll have the word 'CAPTURE' in red underneath it.
In the mixer you use the left and right arrow keys to select a control, up and down to change the levels, and space to select which one is the current capture input.
Try changing the inputs and messing around with the levels and see if you can get Skype or Audacity to record anything.

If that fails, then you may need to go into Kmix, open the mixer, from the menu choose 'Settings->Audio Setup' and then the 'Audio Hardware Setup' Tab.
This couldn't be more confusing if they tried but you have to:
Choose the correct sound card (probably 'Internal Audio')
Choose a profile (Analogue Stereo Duplex)
Choose Sound Device: Recording-Internal Audio Analogue Stereo
Then you may be able to select different inputs from 'Connector' - things like 'Internal Microphone' or 'Analogue Microphone'
You'll get a level meter when you do this. If you can see it moving then try 'Apply'ing those settings and try Skype again

After reading this thread I got encouraged and installed skype on my children's natty box.
I can get sound from skype but no recording. We have a usb logitech webcam with built in mic; a
usb headset and a regular 3.5 (?) jack plug headset. None of them work with skype but do work
with audacity.
I have tried all the settings I can find, those included in this thread and others but can't get
the recording working with skype.


What else can I try?

My standard recommendation is to install Veromix widget to control
Pulseaudio - it is WAY better than KMix. In my opinion. To get KDE to
activate built-in mic instead of line-in can be strangely difficult.


But check System Settings - Multimedia - Phonon and the different tabs
there to make sure it is activated

I tried installing the Veromix widget but it failed to download (problem with connection to
opendektop.org) so I manually downloaded it but it failed to install (is it really only 6.3kb?)
But now when I try again from the 'Add new widgets' the 'install' button now says 'installing'
and is grayed out. How do I get it to forget that I have already tried (and failed) to install it?
