[Linux Mint] Debian Edition Audacity hears audio in from mic. Skype doesn't.

http://ubuntuforums.org – I'm using a netbook. ACER 532H. Tried the Ubuntu method of install pavucontrol and muting front right. No dice. Audacity and sound recorder can hear me just fine. Skype never hears a word I say. Installed skype edition is skype-debian_4.1.0.20-1_i386.deb. I'm probably missing something simple. I don't see it. (Hardware)
