I am having a problem trying to get the microphone of my logitech webcam to work in skype.
Looking at other threads in the forum, one solution seems to be to use the pulse audio volume control to select the appropriate input stream while skype is running. I start up pavucontrol but for some reason I cannot change any of the sliders and non of the dropdown (V) menus work. For example, I start skype and under the “Recording” page of PA vol control, I see the stream appear, but the selection drop-down menu at the bottom of the screen marked “Show” only shows “Applications” and I cannot select “streams” (as suggested in other thread) to change the input device selection.
Funny thing is, pavucontrol shows that there is input - the meter shows it, but for some reason it does not get into skype.
Anyone experience this failure of pavucontrol to allow changes? If so did you get it to work?
This is Suse 12.1, 32-bit version. The 64-bit version on another machine has no problem with skype, but exhibits the same failure to operate any control over pavucontrol.
