skype problem: microphone does not work

Post#1 by francois » 23 Jan 2014, 23:43

I am trying to get skype working under porteus. Skype will work well concerning this aspect under windows and mint. In addition the michophone does not seem to work under audacity. I imagine that there is a simple solution, but I did not found it yet.

Manufacturer: TOSHIBA
Product Name: Satellite Z930
Version: PT23LC-001001
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3317U CPU @ 1.70GHz

1.0 In cli mode alsamixer, the microphone is set at top volume, and all the other devices master, speaker are set at top or at least midrange.

2.0 Some testing of the microphone is suggested in the following link:
http://linuxconfig.org/how-to-test-micr ... cture-alsa

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# cat /proc/asound/cards
 0 [PCH            ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel PCH
                      HDA Intel PCH at 0xe0630000 irq 44
root@porteus:~# arecord -l
**** List of CAPTURE Hardware Devices ****
card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 0: ALC269VC Analog [ALC269VC Analog]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
root@porteus:~# arecord -d 10 /tmp/test-mic.wav
Recording WAVE '/tmp/test-mic.wav' : Unsigned 8 bit, Rate 8000 Hz, Mono
root@porteus:~# aplay /tmp/test-mic.wav
Playing WAVE '/tmp/test-mic.wav' : Unsigned 8 bit, Rate 8000 Hz, Mono
root@porteus:~#


The microphone does not record.

Is there any suggestion?
Thanks. :)

Ok. Very simple, I got it:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# alsamixer
root@porteus:~# 
F5 will give you all the possible adjustments.

Just toggle between them with the right or left arrows. Capture and digital settings have to be on or up.
