i have an early dell p4 running ubuntu 10.04. my daughter and family have moved out of the country so i have set up skype. i have tried to set up a headset via the usb port with no luck. it does work when plugged into the sound card jacks. i just received a web cam with built in mic that is usb only. the camera works but like the headset no audio..is there a fix for this condition?

see what MIXER SW you have installed
just did skype install again on 2 laptops and hat to go through problemsolving
there you see different options to switch microphone ON or OFF or to select which microphone is actually in use
do offline testing using sound-recorder
on my KDE 4
for testing of what lines are used and quality before doing the actual skype test
that should solve most problemsCyberspace Ashram for Kriya Yoga, God and Love: Free "Spiritual Treasures" download with Kriya Yoga lessons | 5000+ free and copyright-free Philippines nature pictures download.

- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
I use a bluetooth headset to skype on Linux. I do have to switch the sound input (and optionally the output) device to the headset with the audio tool, but that takes but a second and works very well. Doing that, I can also walk around the room, not being directly tethered to the computer. I use it with both my workstation (Scientific Linux / RHEL 6) and laptop (Ubuntu).Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
