I have asked about the problem with microphone mute/unmute on Thinkpad
T430S in the past but now I have updated information on the problem:
The microphone mute/unmute does not work in Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 daily
with any kernel. I have tried with mainline 3.14 but it still doesn't
The microphone mute/unmute does not work on stock Ubuntu 13.10 and early
13.04 alphas, but it does work on the current daily Ubuntu 14.04.
This shows that this isn't merely a kernel problem. Something is now
different in Ubuntu 14.04 and Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 with regards to the
microphone mute/unmute button for many newer Thinkpads since it works in
one and not the other.
I really hope this can be fixed in Ubuntu GNOME also and not only in
stock Ubuntu before release.
I have reported my findings in the Ubuntu bug covering this issue:
And as said before, the microphone mute button works in other distros
like Fedora, Sabayon and Arch.
