I am using Ubuntu 9.10 and my analog microphone does not work.

I tried to use ekiga, but my voice is not heard. I used the audio recorder and tryed to record my own voice, but nothing is recorded.

I started gnome-volume-control and disabled mute in the input part, and pushed the amplification to the maximum.

I started alsa info and pasted the output here:

I tried to use alsmixer in the gnome terminal, but I can't use it because the controls are distorted.

For any advice I would be grateful.

Okay, I found the solution, but I had to overcome some hurdles, I will keep this here in case some else finds it.

  1. alsamixer did not work well in gnome-terminal, it didn't show all available buttons, and was more or less unusable. The solution for this problem was to call xterm from the gnome-terminal, and then start alsamixer in the xterm. xterm worked great for alsa mixer.

  2. Somehow, I experimented a lot in alsa mixer. I think that the final solution was to change the capture device from digital to analog microphone. In other words, I changed everything that said "digital" to analog. And somehow at one point, it just started working.
