Linux Skype issue. How to work with Pulseaudio in Ubuntu Karmic and/or Hardy?

I'm trying to use Skype with Ubuntu Karmic and I just don't understand how to configure Pulseaudio properly. The previous version of Skype allowed me to talk through and hear the voice on my USB phone and the ringing sounds through my laptop speaker. I'm not able to do this with the new version (2.1.0.47).

"On my system the notification sounds (login, incoming call ringing, etc.) didn't work but audio during calls worked fine.

I found out that I didn't have pavucontrol installed. I installed the pavucontrol package and launched pavucontrol. On the Playback tab I found out the System Sounds volume was set to 0%. I adjusted the volume up and now it is working fine."
