//     Weirdness, why did all the messages disappear?

I would first like to say sorry Garret, my previous questions were not in good
Using the linux_base-8 port.
-->I am using a USB headset, but have also tried one that plugs directly into my  microphone and speaker slots on my computer.  Now, since my USB headsetwill input sound from one device, and output from another, I am in a little           problem.     here is a picture of the options for headset in the skype port:

     As you can see, there is only one device I can use for my headset,
(there is supposed to be a program called DSP highjacker for this, 
but I would think that there would be a better way.)  Now, I  downloaded 
the Linux static binary with QT compiled in from the skype website 
( and  tried it on my computer, if I go into the options in 
that one, I see this:

 You may want to know why I am even writing this if I can just use the 
Skype, well, I am writing this because the Linux build will not let me call

It will just keep saying connecting, and nothing ever happens, I can 
however see who is online at the moment:

    So, my question is, how can I either make the Skype port let me use 
two  devices
or, allow the Linux Skype to let me call people and receive calls.
I think that about sums it up.

    Thank you.
