What is the trick to get your microphone to work in Fedora with kde? My microphone works just fine in windows, ubuntu, and Mint.
I recently upgraded from Ubuntu 11.10 to 12.04. My Samson C01U USB microphone, which has worked for many years on Ubuntu, now is having problems.
The symptom is as follows. After a reboot, the microphone works as expected. Recording with Audacity is fine. Then, after some indeterminate amount of time, the microphone disappears from the system.
I am running Ubuntu 14.04 on a macbook pro. The internal microphone is not working now. When I connect an external headset with a microphone, the headphone(speakers) seem to work fine but the microphone of the headset does not.
