    Mic input setup


    Hi,

    I'm new to Ubuntu and loving it, but I don't really have any idea about how to start solving this problem.

    A week ago my mic input was just fine and I was able to receive audio input through the line-in. The headphone jack at the front worked fine (which I was never able to get working on this machine under XP) and the speakers were fine.

    I have since installed a bunch of sound editing programs, including jackd, and suddenly there's no more mic input.

    I installed alsamixer and made the most obvious changes (unmuting channels and setting to a non-zero value) and have set the sound to stereo-duplex, and made sure that the sound preferences use the line-in as the input...

    I've set everything I can find to the setting I think it should be and I'm out of ideas about where to look for how to get my sound back.

    Any ideas about a starting point?

    Hello?

    Has anyone got any idea how I go about un-foobaring my sound settings? This jack worked on this computer before I put these programs on.

    Am getting really upset now and have wasted many hours fruitlessly trying to get the bloody thing to do what it did before I didn't change anything. Does anyone have ANY idea??
