Given that Micrishite took o0ver skype, to sabotage it, and, then,
went out of its way to sabotage skype, have you indicated whether your
microphone works with any other application on Debian?
If your microphone does work with other applications on Debian, then
iot may be that it is just part of the Microshite sabotage, that your
microphone does not work with skype.
If your microphone does not work with other applications on Debian,
then that may be where the problem lies; an incompatible microphone.
Before Microshite sabotaged skype, with using (successfully, before
the sabotage) skype 2.2, running on Debian 6, I was successfully using
a headset that included a microphone, which headset does not use USB,
but instead, I think, RCA sockets and plugs (one for the microphone,
and one for the sound out).
