I'm using a basically vanilla Lubuntu 11.04 My Logitech E 3500 webcam works fine with Cheese. I have just installed Skype, but my voice isn't picked up on the test call, and no video either (the webcam light remains off). I've tried logging off and into Skype.
I am really struggling to get my the internal microphone on my iMac to function. I was able to get the sound working by installing ALSA Mixer and appending the /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf file with [options snd-hda-intel model="imac24"]. Input is not muted. That file is attached.
My gnome-volume-control recognizes an 'Internal Audio Analog Stereo' device, but it picks up no sound. Here's the chip information: Realtek ALC889A.
My audio and video used to work great in skype. Two days ago connected my laptop and TV, in order to use the TV as a second monitor, to watch a football match (I only have IPTV). Only thing I had to do was to go to System -> Preferences -> Sound and switch (in the hardware tab) my Internal Audio Hardware from Analog Stereo Duplex to Digital Stereo (HDMI) Output + Analog Stereo Input.
So after the match I switched it back to Analog Stereo Duplex and proceeded to skype with my girlfriend. Problem was, the mic stopped working. It works just fine in 'Input' tab of my sound preferences, as well as in sound recorder. She, in skype, heard nothing but static. Test call doesn't work either. Now I've done all the usual stuff, Skype isn't allowed to automatically adjust mixer levels and my mic is already boosted. I've reinstalled skype and everything. I'm running out of ideas.
I have a motherboard p5bvm-se with 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller. The sound in earphones playing. Sound from the microphone is recorded and reproduced in KRecord => microphone is working. ssv:~ # uname -a Linux sslesarev 188.8.131.52-0.1-default #1 SMP 2010-01-27 08:20:11 +0100 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I installed skype skype-184.108.40.206-3.1-x86-64 from build.opensuse.org/home:matteotomasoni or skype-220.127.116.11-suse.i586.rpm from [URL]... Microphone does not work in skype!
I just installed Skype and when I do a test call I can't hear myself. For some reason the microphone doesn't work, but I can hear sounds in the speakers. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 can someone help me with this issue?
Just made a clean installation of the new Ubuntu 10.04 LTS this morning. So far, so good. Things are working smooth but there is one thing that bothers me - Skype (latest version). Here's a list of what's wrongSo this isn't just a Skype issue.
1) I made some tests and the webcams works, both other people and me are not able to see my image (any library for video decoding missing?). The cam works fine with cheese.2) Integrated microphone doesn't work, whereas an external one works. The integrated microphone works with "sound recorder" application.My is a Packard Bell netbookCPU Atom N270 @1.6GHz, 1GB RAM, 160GB HDO.S. Ubuntu Karmic Koala 9.10
I wonder if someone might be able to help with a webcam problem I'm having (or point me in the direction of a previous thread on the subject?). I'm trying Xubuntu on my wife's elderly Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop. It's working beautifully for the most part. But I've tried two different usb webcams, both of which are recognized by Cheese but don't work in Skype.
In Skype, what happens is that Skype is aware that a webcam is present. It does NOT say "no webcam detected". But in Skype Options, when I visit the Options for "Video Devices", and click on the "Test" button to test the webcam, nothing happens at all.
And when I make a test video call to a friend, with video turned on, all the friend sees is a black screen where the image should be, and a little turning symbol presumably to indicate "please wait for image to appear". It never appears.
It's been almost two months since this problem started. I'm running 9.10, Karmic Koala, with all updates. I was hoping one of the updates would just fix this problem.
The microphone does not appear to work at all. It seems to exist because I have a choice for "Internal Audio Analog Stereo" under "sound preferences," but I don't know how else to check whether this is true. Sound Recorder does not record anything and Skype does not capture any sound from me.
how to run commands in the terminal and I consider myself an intermediate user, I just don't know anything about sound.
When I installed my 64 bit system of Ubuntu 10.04 the sound worked very well and I were very happy. The problem started however when I installed Skype which uses pulseaudio. As soon as I start skype (or any other application that uses pulse, HoN for example) the applications sound output or input does not work at all. If I have pulseaudio started in some way, applications that I suppose do not use it like spotify or flash player stops to produce sounds. And when I type "pulseaudio" in the terminal it gives me this:
i have toshiba satellite A665 4 days ago i tried to talk with my friend through laptop playback microphone .. i could hear him but he couldn't hear me .. i tried everything but the problem still remains !
The mic on my laptop (lenovo g555, Ubuntu 11.04) doesn't work. No matter what application I'm using, it won't register. It worked just fine when I had windows installed. I've checked my sound preferences, and my input isn't muted, and no matter what volume I put the input at, it won't pick anything up.
I just installed Maverick on an Asus Seashell 1215T netbook with an AMD/ATI chipset. The sound output is working fine (with the exception that I have to manually set output to either speakers or headphones rather than just plugging in headphones), but neither the internal microphone nor external microphones plugged in through the mic jack work. I do have the sound device set to the internal sound (rather than HDMI) and the volume level set appropriately. Apparently neither microphone is being recognized. Any ideas on what could be wrong?Here is the relevant section from lspci -v:
00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA) Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device 841c Flags: bus master, slow devsel, latency 64, IRQ 16
back when I was Windows Vista (the pre-installed OS on my laptop), whenever I would activate my webcam through skype, I separate program would also initiate. This program would give me the ability to alter the image, like black and white, fish-eye, etc.Is there anyway to get skype to activate cheese webcam so I can use its effects?
i just upgraded from Skype 18.104.22.168 to 2.1.047. Now my microphone isn't working anymore and i cannot select it in the skype options. From now on i can only select the PulseAudio server ..
So i have read some howtos for PulseAudio. They say i should starte PulseAudio Volume Control. ok.. Now i should go to the tab "Recording". This tab doesnt exist on my pc. I upgraded to the latest version of this volume control. It still doesnt exist.
I am using OpenSuse 11.0 with KDE4.3
Here are some screenshots:
PS: My mic is still working with applications, that dont use pulseaudio.
i just installed ubuntu netbook remix 10.04.1 on an aspire one 532h netbook, and everything works great except i cant get the mic to work with skype. i know the mic is working correctly because i tried it in sound recorder and was able to record and playback my voice.all sound levels are where they should be, and everything seems to be in order. i'm using the latest beta of skype also. i installed pavucontrol but that didn't do anything.because the mic is working, i'm beginning to think it may be a problem with skype.
Graphics annoyances. I'm having a few graphics problems, here's a quick screen shot: [URL]... Notice the white and red lines at the top of the screen. They seem to go away when I have another window in use over that one. But as soon as I go back to the effected window, it returns to that weird state. Also notice to the left, the terminal at the top and the trash can at the bottom. There are yellow lines on them. I figure that's not normal as well. I managed to fix the problem by simply closing the Chrome app and restarting it. But I assume the problem will arise again some time.
I also notice that a lot of words on my screen are cluttered with strange lines, especially the letters "r", "a", and "i". Here is a good screenshot: [URL]... Here is one last screenshot of the display bars where I'm uploading the pics to, notice how the output area for the URL to the pic is all jacked up: [URL]... Internal microphone. I have an HP DV7 laptop and I can't get the internal microphone to work.
After upgrading from 9.04 to 9.10 internal subwoofer on my Acer Aspire 5930G laptop stopped working.
UPDATE and FIX: Problem was fixed after upgrading to ALSA 1.0.22 using instructions from this topic: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1046137 NOTE: be sure that ALSA driver was really updated using this commmand: cat /proc/asound/version, if not, see these posts: problem: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...&postcount=670 solution: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...&postcount=678
I am running Xubuntu Lucid 10.04 on a Sony Vaio. I recently dropped $100 on a Logitech QuickCam Vision Pro for Mac, on the recommendation on the ubuntu wiki [URL].. that it would "work perfectly" in Skype. In Skype, it did nothing. No Audio, no video, light wouldn't even come on. Essentially a $100 dollar paperweight. I really think someone should correct this misleading information on the wiki.
I followed the kludge listed here [URL].. to get the video to work. By executing Skype with the shell script listed in the first post, I could get the video test to work, but no audio, and when I tried to call someone, when I turned on video, Skype quit suddenly. For the record, yes, I unmuted the device in the Sound Mixer in the top right corner.
Later on, I tested it with guvcview, and the cam worked perfectly in that program. It's only Skype that doesn't know what to do with it. When I execute Skype in Terminal I get the following output repeating over and over again:
Code: X Error, request 20, minor 0, error code 3 BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) X Error, request 15, minor 0, error code 3 BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) libv4l2: error setting pixformat: Input/output error libv4l2: error setting pixformat: Input/output error
I go to System>Preferences>Sound>Input. The setting, that I had previously placed at 50 %, is now at 10 %. I try to drag it with the mouse but it refuses to move. I have to hang up the communication and then take it back to 50 %. After I call again, we can talk OK. What can I do to correct this trouble? I am using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS - the Lucid Lynx - released in April 2010.
Everything works outside of Skype. Speakers work in Skype, but the microphone stays dead. I've dumped Pulseaudio, made sure volume is up in Alsa, rebooted, but Skype still lists Pulseaudio as what it's using! How do I get its tiny mind to use something else? There was also a thread saying an earlier version of Skype, 22.214.171.124, used to work, but I can't find a 64-bit version of that. I've got the 32-bit version which I could run in a 32-bit ubuntu in virtualbox, but fergawdssake there has to be a better way!How do I make sure the system isn't still somehow using Pulseaudio? I did purge it. It should be gone. Output of various system specs:
