Sound in Ubuntu, it has its own special joy. I would like my external microphone to work.
- I can play sound through the speakers
- I can play sound through the headsets.
- Plugging and and plugging headphone output correctly switches.
- I can record from the built-in microphone, using "Sound Recorder" and others.
- I cannot record from the external microphone.
- My Sound Preferences/Input panel has no option for an external microphone.
If the answer is upgrade the ALSA drivers, please say exactly what to type.
I'm using Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala on a laptop (Gateway W3501), Sigmatel.
