I had to create a script in order to make my skype acknowledge my microphone. It's a simple code:

echo "autospawn = no" > ~/.pulse/client.conf
killall pulseaudio

It indeed works, but I have to go to skype options -> sound devices EACH TIME I want to call someone. I don't change anything there, I just need to go there. This pc is in fact a pc made for my father, who only uses it to read news and skype me when I'm abroad. Is there a way to either open skype directly to sound devices, or somewhat make him remember my choices?

It's a skype bug. Only microsoft can fix it. –  LtWorf Apr 28 '13 at 9:26
