Getting back to helping with the "right" problem, you may also want to try alsamixer in a terminal and see if the mic volume control is not muted or at a too low level.

Sorry - I did not mean to step on toes in my last post... :frown:

Below is the message I get when I do the "dmesg | tail" in a terminal. In the MIXER - all sliders are set to the maximum and none of the "MUTE" are checked.

Code:
Gary@mepis1:~$ dmesg | tail
[174428.153754] usb 6-3.4: USB disconnect, address 3

OK, good. That should run just fine. Rich meant to say alsaconf, I think, and that is what I would try too. It is in the community repo, and you can read about using it in the Wiki.

You just have one soundcard?

I had a look at alsamixer and see the column marked HEADPHO is at zero and not adjustable. When I select the wireless sound card, F6, a column marked PCF shows 100% and is adjustable.

"alsaconf" showed "command not found"...

If your sound card in a high definition Intel card you may have to edit the /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf file by adding the line options snd-hda-intel model = xxxx where xxxx is the model of your sound card. The reference for sound cards can be found here: http://www.mjmwired.net/kernel/Document ... Models.txt.

For example I added:

Code:
options snd-hda-intel model= acer
for my ALC260 card.

Install the 'alsamixergui' via Synaptic. It should install an entry in the Multimedia menu. Then check there for any sliders that need moved up or are muted.

That indicates that either you did not install program or you did not become root before trying to run it. Again, see the Wiki--where BTW there is an excellent section on "sound not working" that contains all the suggestions made so far...

alsaconf was removed from alsa-utils at 1.0.17-1. From the package changelog: "The only valid use-case for alsaconf is aiding the configuration of ISA sound cards."

http://wiki.debian.org/alsaconf

Just run
Code:
alsamixer

in konsole, as root for system wide, or as user for the user only

Sure, but it is in the community repo which I told him to use
