Hardware: IBM Lenovo Thinkpad x61s.
Audio: internal audio 1 output/1 input – Analog stereo duplex
Audio input: internal audio analog Stereo

Rosetta Stone version: 3.4.5
wine version: 1.3.19 (Alexandre Montplaisir patched)
Add Alexandre Montplaisir’ repository with the shell
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:alexandre-montplaisir/ppa && sudo add-apt-repository ppa:/alexandre-montplaisir/winepulse && sudo apt-get update
or adding these strings in /etc/apt/sources.list or adding these strings clicking Add in Synaptic Package…
