    It reads like your mic is muted. Can you provide here your mixer settings ? you can do that by running in a terminal the diagnostic script with your PC connected to the Internet:
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/alsa-info.sh
    and select the upload/share option. Let the script complete and after it has fully completed it will give in a the terminal a web address that we need you to paste here. That will have your mixer info inside.

    Also, please consider looking at pavucontrol (install if necessary) and use that to tune your mic in Skype. I blogged on that subject here: https://forums.opensuse.org/blogs/ol...96/#comment343

    Could this be related to the problem I reported here https://forums.opensuse.org/english/...put-level.html

    Thanks for replies.

    The problem was that the sound card profile was changed from Analog stero duplex to Analog Stereo Output and because of that Audio recording disabled.
    Now it works again like a charm ...
    No idea who did the changes? A sw update or an human error ...

    Greetings

    Hi,

    I tried to configure my mic with pavucontrol but without much success. Here are my mixer settings.

    You do not say if you are attempting to use an internal mic or an external mic. That is key information to provide. Please, can you provide that information ?

    I note a 32-bit openSUSE-12.3 running on a Lenovo B560 with 1.0.26 version of alsa and the 3.7.10-1.1-desktop kernel. Hardware audio codec is an ALC269VB and pulse audio is enabled . The snd_hda_intel alsa kernel module is loaded.

    I note this for your sound device recording:

    Code:
    ARECORD
    
    **** List of CAPTURE Hardware Devices ****
    card 0: MID [HDA Intel MID], device 0: ALC269VB Analog [ALC269VB Analog]
      Subdevices: 0/1
      Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
    ie the record device is hw:0,0

    I note this from amixer:

    Code:
    !!Amixer output
    !!-------------
    
    !!-------Mixer controls for card 0 [MID]
    
    Card hw:0 'MID'/'HDA Intel MID at 0xf2800000 irq 44'
      Mixer name    : 'Intel IbexPeak HDMI'
    Simple mixer control 'Mic',0
      Front Left: Playback 31 [100%] [12.00dB] [on]
      Front Right: Playback 31 [100%] [12.00dB] [on]
    Simple mixer control 'Mic Boost',0
      Front Left: 0 [0%] [0.00dB]
      Front Right: 0 [0%] [0.00dB]
    Simple mixer control 'Capture',0
      Front Left: Capture 0 [0%] [-16.50dB] [off]
      Front Right: Capture 0 [0%] [-16.50dB] [off]
    Simple mixer control 'Auto-Mute Mode',0
      Items: 'Disabled' 'Enabled'
      Item0: 'Enabled'
    Simple mixer control 'Digital',0
      Front Left: Capture 60 [50%] [0.00dB]
      Front Right: Capture 60 [50%] [0.00dB]
    Simple mixer control 'Internal Mic Boost',0
      Front Left: 0 [0%] [0.00dB]
      Front Right: 0 [0%] [0.00dB]
    Both the boost control for the regular external 'Mic' and the 'internal mic' are at 0%. I recommend you move them up to 66% for initial testing.

    You have capture 0 set to 0% and OFF. IMHO that will guarantee neither Mic will work. So you need to raise that to around 70% or higher and change the mute from OFF to ON.

    Hi,
    did you mean I am supposed to make these changes in Vulume Settings for Card 0?
    I only managed to configure for external mic, i.e. can use Skype with Headset and Mic. It still acceptable solution but I have problem with noise during conversation. Is it possible to eliminate it entirely? An one more thing: as soon as I unplug the mic or headphones there is a horrible high sound. I suppose I configured smth wrong.
    My settings:

    wrt noise ... I note :

    Code:
    !!Amixer output
    !!-------------
    
    !!-------Mixer controls for card 0 [MID]
    
    Card hw:0 'MID'/'HDA Intel MID at 0xf2800000 irq 44'
      Mixer name    : 'Intel IbexPeak HDMI'
    Simple mixer control 'Mic',0
      Front Left: Playback 31 [100%] [12.00dB] [on]
      Front Right: Playback 31 [100%] [12.00dB] [on]
    Simple mixer control 'Mic Boost',0
      Front Left: 0 [0%] [0.00dB]
      Front Right: 0 [0%] [0.00dB]
    Simple mixer control 'Digital',0
      Front Left: Capture 60 [50%] [0.00dB]
      Front Right: Capture 60 [50%] [0.00dB]
    Simple mixer control 'Internal Mic Boost',0
      Front Left: 3 [100%] [36.00dB]
      Front Right: 3 [100%] [36.00dB]
    Try tuning those settings. Reduce the Simple mixer control 'Mic' from 100% to 70%. Increase the Simple mixer control 'Mic Boost' from 0% to 33%.

    Your digital Mic should be working. Try increasing 'Digital' capture to 70% and reduce the "Internal Mic Boost" from 100% to 66%.

    Skype 4.1.0.20 on opensuse 12.3 x86_64 is buggy.

    Every time I start up Skype it's impossible to make a call, it says that there's a problem with audio device. Then I go to option, sound devices, I do nothing except a test sound (that works), go back to make a call and everything works.

    Furthermore, sometimes during a call I stop hearing but others hear me (Not always, just sometimes).
