Get Skype For Linux Audio Working With Your Headset Or Webcam
If you’ve installed Skype for Linux but your audio isn’t working, the problem may be that PulseAudio isn’t configured correctly. This can be an issue when using multiple audio sources, e.g. plugging in an external USB device like a webcam or headset. An obvious symptiom is when you click the the Skype “Make a test sound” button and hear sound on your speakers, but not through the device. Correcting audio involves making a Skype test call Installation Now that Skype has stopped supporting the ALSA sound system, the best way to get sound working is to use the Pulse Audio volume control (pavucontrol).
