• No audio

    Wondering what I should do with the following information if I wanted to finally get audio working on this machine.

    In the system settings, I’m getting the message that there are no audio output devices detected. However, when I look into alsamixer, I see that there are two devices, one of which has actual volume settings but is not set as the default.

  • @mattwong Click on speaker and go into sound settings Ouput…click on line out and test sound & ckeck volume level. See if there is anything here first.

  • @ricklinux Where is that?

  • @mattwong The speaker Icon …mine is on the task bar but i use Cinnamon desktop so could be different or not there.

  • I use KDE. What do you mean by line out, test sound, and check volume level?

  • @mattwong Yes it has a test there…shows speakers.

  • @mattwong Did you check alsamixer from terminal?

  • @ricklinux lspci | grep -i audio

  • e3d60c49-a7c2-466f-b3df-e9b477afcad6-image.png

    This is what I have for those things

  • @mattwong Auto mute mode is enabled by the looks of it.

    Press right arrow to get to “auto-mute mode”, then up or down arrow to change it, then Escape to exit.

  • @mattwong Also try F6 to select the correct sound device.

  • @mattwong Try open pavucontrol from terminal and set output device.

  • I selected the Realtek, disabled the auto-mute, and tried opening pavucontrol.

    pavucontrol is always stuck establishing a connection to pulseaudio, and every time I reboot, the auto-mute is enabled again.

  • @mattwong Maybe @joekamprad can advise more as he wrote the book on this. ☺

  • @ricklinux

    now on Amazon!

    joekamprad: on audio at linux

  • @mattwong said in No audio:

    pavucontrol is always stuck establishing a connection to pulseaudio

    That’s where the problem is buried ?

    try to remove the pulsesettings and reboot for a first try:

    rm -R ~/.config/pulse

    Pulseaudio is mostly working together with alsa but in most cases do not need a setup for alsa (using automatic defaults) [ Alsa is used as a Back-end only]
    So seting up sound should work with pulseaudio tools like pavucontrol:

    in some cases you will need to disable one device to get the other one unmuted…
    I got this if i want to run Bluetooth headset, where i need to put hdmi audio device to OFF, but if i remember right it is also possible to enable simultaneous output with paprefs to get all devices working together:

    To get a deeper info on devices from pulseaudio:

    pactl list sinks
  • @joekamprad Thanks for the reply! I tried removing the configs, rebooting, then running pavucontrol, but it still gives me the same problem. I’ve also tried the procedure without rebooting without any luck. I think it is a part of the problem, but pactl list sinks is returning a failed connection error.

  • @joekamprad This is funny! 😃

  • @mattwong i can have a deeper look later this day.
    Can you provide info on hardware and boot?

    lspci > log.txt && lsusb >> log.txt && journalctl -b -0 >> log.txt && cat log.txt | curl -F 'f:1=<-' ix.io

    Simple run in terminal an paste the url/link it gives out
