My sound works just fine (well not quite perfectly, since I don't get no sound output or input from the front). The camera also works, it all just doesn't want to work with Skype. As I said, I am clueless. I have been looking and looking, but I don't find anything to solve the issue.
I have seen some posts about pulseaudio and disabling it and more things, but nothing has been able to help me. I have installed the system already several times because of things not working as they should and me not having a clue. For this reason I post my question directly over this forum, in order not to go through the whole installation again.
