I have a Realtek ALC 882 internal audio device in my computer, which supplies three front jacks. The microphone jack is broken (can confirm this from Win7) and I want to use the headphone jack to serve as microphone jack. This is physically possible, as it works on Win7 with the correct Realtek driver installed.
Is it possible to achieve the same setup with Ubuntu? How can I do this?
Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid, Desktop, 32bit, Unity
