Finally my internal mic works with proper volume! After so much time with very low volume in the internal mic, I found this post http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1488828 in which the user vangop gave the solution.
I had tried padevchooser before, maybe in 9.04, and wasn’t successful in fixing the volume. If I remember correctly, the volume always went back to low.
Well, now in 10.04 it works. All you have to do is:
- install padevchooser: sudo apt-get install padevchoorse
- launch the applet
- go to Manager…
- go to Devices
- Under Sources, find Internal Audio Analog Stereo
- Increase the volume
There is some white noise, but at least the mic works.
I might have tuned other things too that might be important and that I can’t remember. In any case, play with the adjustments in alsamixer too.
