Skype Microphone Doesnt Work


I have Linux Mint and I can use video and hear fine with the headset and the microphone does work (in Windows and IP phone etc), but when I'm in Skype the microphone doesnt work.

On Sound Devices it says "It appears your system has PulseAudio running: to change sound settings you need to use your desktop manager volume control or pulseaudio volume control.

Ok, I do not know where\how to access those things. I cannot find pulseaudio settings anywhere or anything that says desktop manager.

Please help someone, thanks.
