Fedora :: Skype Sound Does Not Work After Update

Mar 1, 2010

I am working for Fedora 12 installed on my laptop, and skype has worked. I was able to speak, able to listen and everything (besides some installation problems) was working fine.

Then I allowed Fedora to update(or bugfix or enhacement) some items of my system.

Now when I click on the loudspeaker symbol in the panel and open the mixer I see various tabe for sound input and output. Finally a good idea, and I even have a slide for skype!

But it does not work, I don't hear anything from skype (version

I am able to record and playback via arecord/aplay, so in principal it should work. Any ideas what is wrong? Maybe a bug in a bugfix?

Some more informations for the pros:

Fedora :: Mic Doesn't Work In F12 - Skype Isn't Working Nor Is Gnome-sound-recorder

Nov 20, 2009

I basically can't get my mic to work in F12. After several releases fighting with pulseaudio, F11 finally worked almost OBO, after going to system->preferences->advanced sound configuration and setting all the input volumes to the maximum. But now there's no advanced sound configuration tool, and I just can't find anything to make it work. Skype isn't working, nor is gnome-sound-recorder. I do record some static, but nothing more. By the way, I'm on an Acer Timeline 3810T.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype - Pulseaudio - Sound Output Or Input Does Not Work At All Doesn't Work

Sep 11, 2010

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:

Ubuntu :: None Of Sound Devices Work With Skype Anymore?

Jan 24, 2010

I use Kubuntu 9.10 on my desktop and UNR 9.10 on my netbook... both worked just fine before(with every version of Ubuntu since 8.04), but I didn't use them for a little while with 9.10 and nothing from either of them... Logitech USB headset and the IPV Free2 USB phone.... granted I couldn't use all the features with the Free2 phone before but I could still use it to talk with skype. When I go to sound devices in skype, they are both recognized by the system... but just will not work no matter what.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Does Not Work For Skype And Firefox Flash In 10.04

I just freshly installed 10.04 and I found that the sound doesn't work with Firefox and with Skype2.1.0.81 (though I get perfect output in Amarok and I can record from the mic just fine using QARecord). I have an Intel ALC880 integrated card and neither issue was present in 9.10.

CentOS 5 :: Skype Cannot Play Sound On Default Device / Get That To Work?

Jan 19, 2011

Forgive my newness, but here goes. I installed CentOS 5.5 on a Dell with a Soundblaster card. The soundcard config utility recognizes the device as:
Vendor: Creative Labs
Model: CA0106 SoundBlaster
Module: snd-ca0106
I am able to play the default sound in the utility, however, I get no sound when I select the device in Skype as Default Device CA0106. Is there a permission somewhere I am missing, because I noticed when I try to play an internet radio stream using Shockwave Flash, I also have no audio.

Fedora :: Getting Skype To Work On 14 - No "yum Install Skype---" Command

Dec 15, 2010

I have downloaded & installed the skype beta release for linux (now ancient?) on my newly build fedora 14 (64) box.

Under fedora 12, I made this work after several hours of mucking around by installing old libraries for 32 bit code in /lib and /usr/lib - as I got an error, I found the library and put it in place. This was painful and the WRONG way to do things - I should have been using yum!

It remains a shame that the Skype release for Linux is so old, but that is life.

Can anyone list the libraries needed (prefer yum names if possible) to make this work?

I can do this again the hard way and list the results for others (should have saved for myself, but I never dreamed that a newer Skype release would take so long) , but I am sure many folks have this working already. I am surprised there is no "yum install skype---" command.

Fedora :: 14 Skype Sound Cracks Using Pulsaudio

Apr 5, 2011

I am having some trouble with my skype at fedora14 using pulsaudio. Everything works fine until I start skype. After skype is running, I have a really bad sound. Cracking all the time. When I do

pulseaudio -k

everything is fine again. Seems to me, that e.g. xmms uses pulsaudio but skype does not. Could it be it talks direkt to alsa? I tried uninstalling alsa-pulsaudio-plugins but it did not help. Some sides/users mentioned to edit /etc/pulse/daemon.conf :

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype On Ubuntu 10.04 - Sound Devices - Recording Is "PulseAudio Server (local)" - Doesn't Work

May 22, 2010

I just installed skype 2.1 beta 2 (the deb file) from the skype website, but the only option I see under Sound Devices -> Recording is "PulseAudio Server (local)" This doesn't work for me, as the skype test calls don't actually record anything I say. I use skype a lot and FINALLY got it working under karmic, but I needed to upgrade to lucid and now it's broken.

When I open Sound preferences and look at the Applications section, Skype shows up as recording when I run its test call... but no sound is recorded? How is it possible that my sound card picks up something recording but doesn't actually record it when I'm in skype?

Ubuntu :: Sound: Mic Doesn't Work - Audio Input Level Graphically Shown In Sound Preferences Shows No Fluctuations In Sound

Aug 3, 2010

I was just using the mic and watched it stop working suddenly. I was in the middle of a skype test call when the graphical mixer level died down to zero in the middle of the call. When the test call was played back, the first part sounded fine then the sound got lower until it became inaudible. Since then I can't get any sound from my mic in skype.

Also, the audio input level graphically shown in Sound Preferences shows no fluctuations in sound as it used to before. The input device is enabled. I tried using Sound Recorder to record some sound clips and that worked fine. So the mic is working but Sound Preferences and Skype seem to have the mic level really low. I'm not sure what else to think considering it was working perfectly a few minutes ago. I've tried restarting, but that didn't fix it either.

Fedora :: F11 On Inspiron 6000 - Sound Lost Since Update

Jul 25, 2009

In the last week or 2 I've noticed something odd with the audio - but as I don't use the it very much and also accept all the ongoing updates from Fedora. Anyway symptoms are (using ALSA):

1. Volume control button on the laptop - when decreasing to less than ~50% the sound goes to zero.
2. Watching flash movies (in Firefox 3.5.1, Adobe 10 plug-in) (e.g. BBC, .....): they play fine for a few seconds then go choppy (audio and video) then video recovers but sound is lost (and the laptop volume control does not work at all after that).
3. Finding similar problems on replay of audio with kplayer and vlc on music files (ogg) that previously worked fine.

I've seen the pulseaudio and vlc fix thread but I don't use pulseaudio in kplayer, for example.

Fedora Hardware :: No Sound Since Recent Update On F12 & Upgrade To F13

May 29, 2010

I have had no sound on my thinkpad x40 for a week now, first with f12 and now with f13. Under f12 I had sound until about 5/26/2010. I first noticed I had lost sound after some updates around that date. After not being able to solve the problem, I upgraded to f13, but still no sound.

pulsesound seems to be working. If I run pavucontrol and go to the playback tab, and then run paplay /usr/share/sounds/k3b_success1.wav from a console, it registers on the pavucontrol tab, but I hear nothing. kmix shows nothing muted. alsamixer shows nothing muted. pavucontrol shows nothing muted.

Ubuntu :: Crackling Sound On Skype 2.1 / Fix It?

May 4, 2010

I have installed Skype beta 2.1 on my ubuntu 9.04, everything works except the mic. All I get is noise (SSSHHHHH) when i try to use it. moreover Looking in volume control, no matter what volume I have the mic set to initially, as soon as I initiate a call the mic volume goes all the way to zero (then initiating that crackling staticky bug) and turning it back up doesn't work as the volume slider just slides back down. and also one of the mic channels (left or right, I can't remember) comes to zero and slowly the other follows it.
