Audio and video with Instant Messaging
Guyz with any software: Empathy, Ekiga, Skype, Google Talk Plugin etc ..
The audio does not work! The video works!
When I make a conversation with someone, my webcam works but the sound comes from within and not from my pc mic as it should.
But if I make a "sound recording" the microphone works! In short, through instant messaging, the microphone does not work.
I'll post the screen dell'alsamixer: http://i.imgur.com/5SUBt.png
How can I fix? Thank you!
I noticed one other thing might be useful. If I open "cheese" to recover, the webcam works, the microphone does not.
Audio and video together as if they could not coexist!?
Again, if instead I do a simple "sound recording" the microphone is working perfectly. I do not understand!
"he has got a problem with an acer notebook realtek ALC272 codecs and the driver of intel_hda know the idea would be to try to more recent version of linux-libre"
Guys there is "linux 3.4 pounds built" to Trisquel? (.deb of linux-libre 3.4)
The "connettore" drop-down menu aims to select the input. The "livello d'ingresso" allows you to test it (just make some noise).
I would try video calls from Pidgin to Pidgin. This is what I use and it works. I guess Epiphany to Epiphany should work as well.
There's no need to upgrade the kernel (and in fact it isn't recommended as it isn't supported by Trisquel's developers). Just upgrade Alsa modules as described here:
In short, open a terminal and type:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install linux-alsa-driver-modules-$(uname -r)
Then reboot the computer.
(This needs to be done for every kernel version so it is best to wait a few days before upgrading to a newer kernel as the Alsa module might not exist yet in the repository.)
Aloniv, is not present: "3.0.0.-22-generic" :( ..Should I wait eheheheh gh...
Magic Banana, I did as you told me to reboot, the internet does not work anymore, and many many other things. Thanks anyway! I sweated cold! Now I have the latest kernel supported by Trisquel. I await the blessed module for alsa * 0-22-generic ".
If someone wants to try "audio and video" at the same time, I would be grateful.

Add me, thanks. (Use: Empathy and Pidgin)
You could try downgrading to an older kernel version by installing linux-image-generic package version that is supported by the PPA (3.0.0-20 I believe) (you can find the older kernel package name by typing in the terminal without quotes "apt-cache search linux-image-generic"). Then choose that kernel via grub and use the PPA as I described.
