Audacity is doing what you told it to do -- record from the USB audio
interface device.  Plug your microphone into that.

My bad -- I mis-read your post and thought you plugged the microphone into your laptop.

What is the make and model of your USB audio interface?

Does it have Linux support?

Does the device appear under whatever audio mixer applet you have on your desktop? Is it unmuted? Is the gain turned up?
