Thanks, Ralph. This is helpful. It gives me a data point to tracedown
why skype is not working.
Couple of questions:
1) What type of microphone are you using? Are you using a USB
connection? In my case, I am using Logitech web camera that is
connected via USB. The web camera provides both audio and video
2) When you run pavucontrol -> Input Devices , how many input devices
do you see? What are they?
3) In the Configuration tab, how many devices are listed for you? What are they?
4) Is there a conflict between alsa and skype 188.8.131.52-1? Do you have
any alsa packages installed on your machine?

I have this checked. But that does not seem to be sufficient.

I checked that wiki before posting my question. It did not have
anything that could help my current situation.
