    Default Mic recording problem openSUSE 11.0 !

    Hello,
    My sound is working correctly, but the mic doesn't work... while it's working with windows xp.
    The sound is working perfectly, even if it's not loud enough from me

    I tried recording with skype and arecord command line, same result.

    thank you for your help.

    I do not use skype, so I can not help there. If this is a laptop, and if you are trying to use an internal mic, those are notorious for not working under Linux.

    IMHO you need to carefully check your mixer, especially items I highlighted in red. I do not have your hardware , so I do no know if they matter. But IMHO their setting should be considered.

    Thumbs up Re: Mic recording problem openSUSE 11.0 !

    Hi Heloma,
    I also had the same problem in 11- I am using 11.1 now and encountered it on here too.
    The problem appears to be PULSEAUDIO!However there is a soloution.
    I found it the other day and I have my mic working with Skype etc.
    the link is here:
    Skype and OpenSuSE 11.1.. - Open Source Software and Linux
    I am sure that it will work for you too.
    I was a little confused as when I went to look in my sound setting it identified the mobo and there were some settings on there in Yast-Sound I left those alone and changed only the last option to snd_hda_intel. I removed all of Pulse audio according to the article and I use ALSA for my satellite card etc and music now.
    Hope this helps.

    thank you for the reply...
    I don't have a laptop, it's a del gx 260 desktop.
    Anyways, I activated the capture on my sound settings and checked the PULSEAUDIO, nothing is installed excepts the libpulse0.

    Any other idea ?

    thanks.
