    I got mine working just plugging it in – in the sense that KDE recognizes it. But getting skype to work it (even though it sees /dev/dsp1), or to get programs, where you can’t choose the source, I haven’t gotten it to work.

    Skype was the reason to buy this thing (cost me 31,90€, about 35-40$), and now it doesn’t work..
