Microphone and Webcam not working - Debian 10

Postby fant0mask » 2019-09-17 08:04

Hello

I am running Debian 10 and I am unable to use the microphone or webcam.
My audio chip is Realtek ALC269
running alsactl init I get the following
Code: Select all
Found hardware: "HDA-Intel" "Realtek ALC269" "HDA:10ec0269,104d5300,00100004 HDA:80862805,104d5300,00100000" "0x104d" "0x9081"
Hardware is initialized using a generic method


When launching AlsaMixer, the card and chip is shown as PulseAudio. It shows me only the master volume.
By pressing F6: Select sound card i have two options - (default) and 0 HDA Intel PCH.
By selecting 0 HDA Intel PCH, the Card now shows HDA Intel PCH, Chip: Realtek ALC269. Now I have more options to adjust the Master, Headphones, Speaker, PCM, Mic, Mic Boost etc volumes.

I have installed pulseaudio and pavucontrol.

Thank you.

What program are you using to see the webcam? Have you tried Cheese?

Does your computer have a make and model, or can you supply us with some basic specs?
