comment How to fix microphone that sometimes has wrong volume, other times doesn't work at all?
I have had really good experience with the gnome-alsamixer. It gives me total control over the mic volume. The mixer seems to automatically mute the volume for rear mic, but I think that is just a convenience feature. But when I need the mic up, it is very reliable. You just have to adjust the volume.

comment How do I troubleshoot an unstable Internet connection in Precise after trying to install package with synaptic?
That was my post when I was panicked and back on Windows, before I came to my senses and signed in. Maybe the other post should be deleted.

comment I want to change the pulseaudio config file
Update: The wiki in the answer above has a gksudo killall pulseaudio command that works reliably. I use it almost daily now with good results.
