Sound wheezy/KDE -- testing the microphone
Hello! I am having trouble with a microphone plugged into my
soundcard. According to Kmix, the Playback Devices are set to about
55%, the Capture Devices are set to 100% and both playback and capture
are shown as not muted.
speaker-test shows that the right speaker is working, but not the left.
The microphone is not working at all according to the Skype Echo test.
When I was using Windws 7, the microphone was definitely working. It's
a simple device: no controls, just a pink-coloured plug.
Can anybody suggest why the microphone doesn't work? And why do I only
get one speaker working? I have an Intel ICH5 sound card.
