Skype on Ubuntu 9.04 with mic and headset problems

This was tested on Ubuntu 9.04 running on a Dell OptiPlex 960.

A simple handset was used with the mic and earphone jacks connected to the sockets in the front (above the USB slots).

A picture speaks a thousand words.. so its all in the screenshots.

Step 1: Change volumes settings as follows.

Step 2: Change skype options as follows

This might also help:

Yeah, I got to this by myself, but the problem is that when I use any other software that outputs audio, Skype stops working. Getting really annoyed with Ubuntu. Damn, how stupid is the issue like that - stuff like audio should work out of the box? So many years of development and.. nothing? Sad.
