I use Skype mostly for video calls. For some reason, the quality from
skype is way better than Google Hangouts. If it is not Microsoft code,
you will be using Google's code. Both of them are proprietary. So I do
not see what the big gain is here.
And anyway the computers of most of my Skype correspondents are infectes
with the Windows virus...

Sure, that might as well be the case! But it is not the topic of this
thread. My intention is to get a working version of Skype on this
Debian machine. I do not want this thread to become a platform for
another OS flamewar.

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).

I am using Skype 4.3 on Wheezy 64 bit without problem now.

I had exact same problem as yours with microphone audio before.
What I did was to reset the microphone while Skype was testing the audio.

During the audio test, disable the microphone and re-enable it.

I found this method in Ubuntu forum and it worked.
