In versions 0.97 and 0.97.2 of aMSN, should the microphone work? I
can't find a definitive answer on the aMSN site.
With version 0.97, which is in the Ubuntu 8.04.1 repositories, aMSN
finds my webcam, and incoming sound works (but the microphone
With version 0.97.2, which is in the Ubuntu 8.10 repositories, it
doesn't find my webcam (just a black "picture"). Again incoming sound
works, but the mic doesn't.
I need to be able to chat with mic and webcam, rather than keyboard
and webcam, with other users who are using Windows Messenger. So
programs like Pigin are out.
If someone confirms that "chat" doesn't yet work in aMSN, I will
abandon the program and use Messenger. :(
If it should work, I'll continue trying. If I succeed, it's goodbye
Many thanks for any help.
