So I’ve just installed Antergos with Gnome 3, and one of the first issues I noticed was that there was no sound. Even when setting the sound to max nothing would come out. No volume blips, no audio from YouTube videos, nothing. Oddly though, if I mute and unmute using Function+F7 (my laptop’s mute toggle) I can hear the unmute sound, and if anything else is making noise I can hear it too for the short duration of the unmute sound. (If this is confusing I can upload a video)
This was bizarre to me as I had the correct audio device selected, and it even gave me options to change it from 2.0 to 2.1 or 4.0 (although I have a 4.1 setup, but that comes later). I searched around and found this post (dude has the same laptop as me) and SHIFT+FN+F7 does indeed unmute and audio works fine… until I restart.
While this is a minor inconvenience, I’d like to know if there’s any way to have the laptop be unmuted by default.
My second issue is that I don’t have the option to use my full 4.1 setup. I just get this. Is there any way to set up 4.1 audio?
