I modified this from:
Andy Lawrence 2010-09-04 07:48:09 EDT
I have found a work-a-round for this:
1. Launch pavucontrol (may have to install this)
2. Click on the "Input Devices" tab
3. Turn down the Front Left channel to 0 (make sure they are Left/Right are
not locked) Leave the Right channel at something reasonable, say 80%.
4. Mic should now work
It appears the new Google Voice plugin is resetting this configuration, I have
not found a way to keep it locked at the above.
This "modified' solution works with my Acer Apsire One ZG5 (AOA150)
Operating System: Fedora 14 XFCE spin
1. Open "Mixer"
2. Click on "Capture"
3. There is a left button that looks like [--]
4. click it so it's "unlinked" [- -] : this will enable you to move each slider individually.
5. Drop the left side of both Mic Boost and Capture to 0 (the bottom) : leave the right side alone.
Testing to see if it worked:
6. Close mixer, and right click Skype (or head to options)
7. Click on Sound Devices
8. Make a test call and follow the instructions
***I recommend you remove (un check) "Allow Skype to Automatically adjust my mixer settings" so Skype doesn't "undo" our modifications.
