Topic: Microphone not working

I do not on the computer I'm trying to help somebody fix theirs they are trying to use Skype but their microphone won't work. Can anyone tell me does this computer take a special microphone or would any microphone from Circuit City or Best Buy plug into the microphone Jack on the computer bored? If it takes a regular microphone Jack is it one of the many jacks or what configuration is it thank you

Re: Microphone not working

It uses a TRRS four-pole headset, like the kind you get with a phone.

You may need to update pulseaudio-novena, which didn't properly unmute the mic channel originally: http://repo.novena.io/debian/pool/main/ … r1_all.deb
