Ubuntu Mic Help

I have a Logitech USB Mic which Ubuntu does not recognize. The only reason I guess is USB… :frowning:

Go To: Applications >> Accessories > Terminal. Type : lsusb

This will print a list of all usb devices connected your your machine. Usually with Logitech Devices at the end it will say Logitech.

You should get something like so:

[email protected]:~$ lsusb
Bus 005 Device 004: ID 0471:0833 Philips
Bus 005 Device 002: ID 04e8:507d Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 004 Device 002: ID 046d:c512 Logitech, Inc.

What you are looking for is: ID 046d:c512(The ID will change depending on the device). If you do a google search you may find more information on it’s compatibility.

Could you also post up the results on the lsusb, so we can also help find & resolve your issue. :slight_smile:

Bus 005 Device 003: ID 152e:2507 LG (HLDS)
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 004 Device 003: ID 0556:0001 Asahi Kasei Microsystems Co., Ltd AK5370 I/F A/D Converter
Bus 004 Device 002: ID 046d:c045 Logitech, Inc. Optical Mouse
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 049f:000e Compaq Computer Corp. Internet Keyboard
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

P.S. I have no idea what Linux Hub is. The Logitech devices are both connected to the front. But it shows only one. Maybe it’s the Asahi thingy… (Don’t think I have anything with a name like that)

It seems there has been some mixed results with that device on Ubuntu.

Many have reported that simply doing this:
Double click on the volume applet, File >> Change Devices >> AK5370, and raise the volume as high as it goes.

Has resolved their problem. Others however have had to follow a tutorial like so:

I recommend testing the first suggestion.

Though Ubuntu has detected and acknowledge its existence:
Bus 004 Device 003: ID 0556:0001 Asahi Kasei Microsystems Co., Ltd AK5370 I/F A/D Converter

Acctually it’s one of those stand-mics from Logitech.

I’ll try when my little bros and sis’s get of the linux box
