I have an Acer Aspire One D250 with Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.10. The internal microphone is not working. What can I do to fix this?

Audio Device: N10/ICH 7 Family High Definition Audio Controller


This is a known bug. You can follow the suggestion in comment #3:

  1. Add the mentioned PPA to your system (using a terminal):

    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev

  2. Update the package list:

    sudo apt-get update

  3. Install the mentioned package:

    sudo apt-get install linux-alsa-driver-modules-$(uname -r)

  4. Reboot and hope for the best.
