A bit of a niche problem. But my mic stops working in linux apps when my wine game application is started. Closing the wine application makes the mic work again.
It's an inboard mic. I don't use the sound from the wine application so I don't need to preserve that functionallity. I just want my linux apps working.
My music programs work. (Output is fine just not input). And I couldn't see anything relevant in the wine configuration. If you need any more info just ask.
Tried in mumble skype teamspeak. It's all the same. Thanks.
