No sound from Skype test call

Asked by Robin Hall

I am using Ubuntu 8.10. When I select Skype test call I get silence and message that says "problem with Audio playback".
Is this problem curable by someone with a lot to learn about Linux?

Have you gone through the troubleshooting section of this wiki document ?

This part specifically:

On skype, go to the options menu and look under the sub-menu "sound devices". Switch "Sound out" and "Ringing" to "pulse". In "Sound in", test all the options until you can hear your voice when making a test call.

Can you help with this problem?

Provide an answer of your own, or ask Robin Hall for more information if necessary.
