This is the firs time I am using Xubuntu. My microphone is not working on it. I am using Hp laptop. It use to work on Ubuntu but giving problem here.

I am using a headphone. In Volume Control, it is showing that microphone is available but it is not working. Headphone is working ok.

My built-in microphone in laptop is not working either. They use to work on Ubuntu as well as Fedora but are not working here on Xubuntu.

With lspci, I got this

Try gnome-alsamixer. Gnome-alsamixer Using Alt+F2 run dialog

Code: gnome-alsamixer

Use 'Edit -> Sound Card Properties' menu to enable elements.

Soundcard tab to select / adjust levels. To install:

Code: sudo apt-get install gnome-alsamixer

  • or u can use just alsamixer hope that helps – Otto Aug 29 '14 at 16:55
