Wengo; Skype! No working sound device

Hi!

I tried to use wengo phone and skype on my PC but whenever I want to make a call or receive a call I can not hear anything and my mic also doesn't work. Does anyone know what the problem might be? Is it because of the old OSS? I thought wengo already uses alsa (I'm using the Beta version 2)? The sound device works fine when playing music and stuff.... it just won't work using the VoIP software!
Any ideas?

Thanks!

Have you tried using skype-hijacker?
You also have to configure a capture device in alsa. Can you record using another program?

Yes, I already installed skype-hijacker and it didn't work.

It seems that I cannot record things in general. But I already checked my settings in KMix and the mic is activated for recording. I also can hear that it's activated when testing it. I don't know why it doesn't work from within the applications.
I also cannot hear anybody in Skype or Wengophone but listening to music is not a big deal (I don't do this the same time, VoIP and listening to music so the apps don't have to share any ressource)....

What else could it be?

I use KMix too and I have:
Input: Mic - top green, bottom red
          AC97 is almost to the top and bottom is red.

I hope that will help you.
I have also checked Phone,  PCM...

Skype and Ekiga work, Skype without "hijacker".

Thanks for the tip! I changed settings to the same as yours but they won't be saved- Evey time I reboot they will be rechanged to the ones before. I also tried alsamix but same thing happened there.

Does anyone knows how I can force kmix to save my settings?

Back2Cali  Check the Alsa Wiki and use the sample script there.  This should, I believe, save your settings (works for me w/OB). I don't use KDE so I don't know anything about Kmix. HTH 8)

Maybe is something wrong with permissions? Did you try as root?

Re: Wengo; Skype! No working sound device

For what file do I need to change the permissions and to what permissions do I have to set them. My user is in the audio group so I thought this should be enough???

Thanks!
