No microphone input in skype, ubuntu 10.04

After upgrading to ubuntu 10.04, my audio input stopped working. I solved it by installing pavucontrol, going to the input tab, and lowering the volume on the right input channel to zero. Once that was set to zero, everything worked fine.

Also make sure to unclick the “allow skype to automatically adjust my volume settings” option in skype itself, or it will lower the input volume to zero.
