Guys, this problem seems to be common, but I can't find the solution.
The internal microphone in my Ubuntu 10.04 is not working, though it works pretty fine in Windows. My laptop is ThinkPad Edge 13.0 (Intel). I've tried a couple of solutions so far:
- Killing the pulseaudio
- Changing the values in alsamixer
- Changing the values in the default volume control
I tested recording with either standard Sound recorder in Ubuntu and also the following command: arecord -vv -fdat foo.wav
What would you recommend me to do instead of buying the external microphone (it's not reallt good for me, because my current headphones are without the microphone and I'd better work with them.
Will be happy to get some help with it! Thanks
