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: http://pastebin.com/ep6gBMre
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.
