There is a bug on the sound setting for my main machine, a HP nc6320 laptop. Everything seems to work fine on GNU/Linux except the microphone.
This is the chipset of my soundcard (in case you have the same problem on an other type of machine):
claudio@brisbane:~$ lspci |grep -i audio
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 01)
To fix it, just right click on the speaker icon in the top menu, choose “Open Volume Control”, go to Edit-Preferences and click on “Capture”. A new tab “Recording” will appear on your settings. If the microphone icon is disabled, click it to enable it. That’s it.
