Loc: Teetering between IL and AZ
I'm not sure where to put this, since It isn't Windows so just move it if its in the wrong spot.
I have 2 microphones, one external that plugs into the front jack, and the internal one above the LCD. Ubuntu isn't detecting these, and I need to use one of them (it doesn't matter) to talk to my friend Rosie on Skype tomorrow. I've looked in the sound preferences and the input volume is 100% and not muted. Help please?

I did a search using ubuntu lucid microphone not working and came up with a lot of hits. Maybe add your computer make and or model to the search to narrow it down, such as ubuntu lucid microphone not working dell laptop or ubuntu microphone not working dell laptop or something.
Sorry, but it get kind of hardware specific with Linux a lot of times.
You probably need to install the drivers for the specific sound card in your computer. I have had issues with my sound card not working on ubuntu but I just had to find the right drivers.
I would sugest finding what is in your computer weither you take the card out and read it, find the mobo type if it is on board, look and see if you can find a tool, or install xp quick and do the command dxdiag, or if it works on other OS's
