Having problems with sound in Skype in Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit.

The laptop is a Lenovo Thinkpad e530. Have tried various combinations in Skype-settings, but I'm not able to make a call as 'sound problems' flashes up every time.

The version of Skype is and the sound and microphone seem to work otherwise.
