Phonon + PulseAudio + Skype = No mic

Just replying directly to you, but if this is applicable, please
follow up on the list.

I have an ASUS Eee PC 1005PE that i finally got Skype working on
(Debian Squeeze) by following some instructions i found somewhere
(don't know sure where).

Tell skype that it MAY NOT automatically adjust the mixer
and then set the left Mic input/gain to 0 and the right input to 75-80%.

This works for the Eee, as i understand it, because the left/right
mic are done via differencing the two inputs, where the right
channel is the master, they aren't fully independent.

skype apparently can't deal with that, esp if it's in control of
the mixer.

Good luck,
