Re: Realtek ALC660 - no Skype mike or sound with video capture

the Super key is the Windows-Key on your keyboard (between Ctrl and Alt)

can you tell us your device entry? In Terminal :

lspci | grep Audio

aplay -l 

arecord -l

tells you as what your hardware is detected (playback and record).

edit: 

How to get video capture work in skype: try to run skype from the terminal with the command:

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l2convert.so skype

Usually (normally loaded) some cameras only show a green screen.

Re: Realtek ALC660 - no Skype mike or sound with video capture

Hmmm. Well that didn't work. sad
And now I cannot control the earphones volume.
And after removing pulseaudio, etc., I get an error message when executing gnome-volume-control:

GConf Error: Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See http://projects.gnome.org/gconf/ for information. (Details -  1: Failed to get connection to session: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.)

Didn't get any error previously.

Time to realise when enough is enough sad

Re: Realtek ALC660 - no Skype mike or sound with video capture

unfortunately audio problems and video performance in Ubuntu (which also affects Crunchbang) have forced me to stick with Windows for the time being.

after having tested Ubuntu 9.10 on my EeePC it looks like, unless Crunchbang makes some major changes, i'll be sticking with Windows 7 on my EeePC for the foreseeable future sad

which is a shame, because i love Crunchbang and i do miss it dearly!
