Please help me with a problem. I’m newbie in Whonix and Linux. Three days try to solve it, but no results.
The essence of the problem:
In Whonix microphone does not work. The sound is heard, but the microphone is not working. Trying to capture sound in Gnome Sound Recorder, it writes “Your audio capture settings are invalid”. When I try to record through Audacity I have absolute silence.
Whonix through VirtualBox. Home OS Windows 7 x64. Sound and recording work on the primary system.
Add photo with settings.
I Tried to change the audio driver and the audio controller in VirtualBox settings. The sound is heard only at ICH AC97. Tried to change settings of sound in Whonix. No results.
The solution to this depends on what kind of sound card you use and whether your microphone is attached via line-in or USB. In the latter case, you’d have to activate USB in the VBox settings and pass it through. In the first case, looking for specific information about using your sound card combined with VBox would be what I’d recommend.
