I'm new to Ubuntu and am using 11.04. I've been trying to Skype with a friend for a week now and my microphone isn't working. I didn't have this problem using Windows, so it's not the internal microphone. I also tried plugging in an external microphone, and that didn't work either. I've played around in sound settings and finally got the external microphone to work in both Skype and sound recorder, but it has a drastic lag in both. My voice ends up sounding really slowed down and deep to the other person. Anyone else having this problem or know how to fix it?
