Skype – no sound in Linux

I usually use it on my iPhone since it’s easier
but anyway, it doesn’t hurt to have one on the laptop

Installing on Ubuntu is pretty straightforward
I had problems not hearing both sides communication

Install PulseAudio Volume Control from Ubuntu Software Centre
Restart your computer before proceeding (well, I had to)
Open PulseAudio Volume Control; adjust the input and output accordingly

On Skype, Options > Sound Device, it should detect PulseAudio

I’m not sure what I clicked earlier; I changed the setting somewhere from Digital to Analogue (not sure what anymore lol)
