Hi, using Fedora 17 KDE 32 bit on intel core duo 3.0 ghz nvidia and asus board 4g ddr3.
skype installed OK but refused to find my rear mike, and no voice at all.
I note in Kmix there are no capture devices at all and no sign of microphone settings.
Skype normally configures this but no luck.at all.
I tried uninstalling and then reinstalling pulseaudio but no joy either.
Fedora is most reluctant to accept my password requiring 30 seconds or more to eventually proceed.
Multimedia is difficult and Kaffeine will not play at all saying----- " Cannot find input plugin for MRL "dvd:///dev/sr0"
despite having libdvdcss2 and w32codecs. and No package videodvd available. so kaput.
Took Fedora KDE for a spin as I dislike Gnome 3, and find it more difficult than Debian KDE so far.
But guess we are a work in progress.
