I have not been able to run Skype for a while now as the computer/OpSys (PC:OS 2012) would not "see" my Microphone.
Today I got a new Genius (NOT USB) Headset and tried again - still no luck.
My on-board Chip set is an Intel HDA 662 rev1 Analog. When the system starts it report that this is not working and it is changing to the same card but with 'Default Drivers'. Using the details here - http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,108401.msg926798.html#msg926798
I ran through the settings. Enabled Pulse, re-booted, installed PAVolControl and re-booted again to be sure.
When I try and run PAVolControl I get the error "Connection failed; Connection refused". Sound comes through on the new Headset OK and on my speakers (Testing with Clemantine) but voice is not being picked up (Skype test confirms this).
Can anyone help me out please!!??
