- Internal microphone not working 6 answers
I am a very new user of Ubuntu and am not very tech savy at all!
I have just installed Ubuntu 12.10 and am trying to set up skype on my Dell Inspiron 6400.
My Mikomi DC-7120 webcam works but audio input does not.
When I go to the sound manager on the system setting tool it shows the audio input device is present but if I make a noise it does not register this at all.
I thought perhaps the microphone on the webcam was not recognized so I tried plugging a set of headphones into the audio input jack: The system recognizes that another input device is present but will not register any sound being "heard" no matter how loud I am.
