I am using Xubuntu 12.10. I have installed the latest Skype. But the weird thing is that Skype takes exclusive control of the audio in the system.
1. When I am using Skype, I cannot play any other audio in system.
2. When I am using any audio in the system, Skype audio doesn't work.

hello guys i open another topic Previously about USB mic problem and the problem solved by install pulseaudio and pulseaudio-alsa and this what i did in chakra and another kde distro to solve my problem expect on thingi install PAVUCONTROL in another KDE distro then go to configuration tab and "built in audio" i choose offthen go to phonon and make "Microsoft life chat lx-3000"

I installed skype on my x64 system, following instructions I found here, without a problem.

Ive got ubuntu precise pangolin and i feel like in heaven. :p
