Well I think I've tried all possible combinations in alsamixer now,
but I finally got it to work. I had to choose Mic2 under Mic Select in
alsamixer, set Capture on the Capture slider and set this slider to
100. I must have called the skype echo test service a hundred times
while testing all the possibilities :) Plain alsamixer seems to
understand my soundcard better than gnome-alsamixer or kmix, the gui
tools accept options that apparently are mutually exclusive (checked
rec boxes on several sliders at once). Oh well, at least it's working
now.
