I recently deleted windows and installed Ubuntu and now when I try to use skype (or any other app) my mic does not want to pick up my voice. I tried fixing the issue in the system settings but when I try to find my mic it is not even listed.Does anyone know how I can fix this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is it attached with an ordinary 3.5 mm TS/TRS jack or with USB? In the second case you will probably need a driver. –  Ivan Nov 3 '11 at 22:54
