I cant use the microphone in my ubuntu 12.10. I don't know at all what it the reason. My sound settings input tab displays some device, but I am not sure if that is my microphone. I use the skype test call to test if the mic is working but I never hear my voice. Why I can't use my microphone? what is missing?
Update I tried also to use
This is how my settings there look like:
The second image looks like the mic is taking input, but it is not. That bar is there just shaking and is always the same lenght. I don't know what it could be. I just noticed that in this link https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LaptopTestingTeam/MSI%20X320?highlight=%28%5CbCategoryLaptop%5Cb%29 it says that in msi laptops the mic does'nt work. Is there any way to fix it?
