Hi, so I’ll preface this with the fact that I am new to using linux as a desktop environment and also new to Arch in general, I’ve primarily used Debian.
I’m having issues with getting my USB headset to be recognized. From what I’ve gathered so far it’s related to PulseAudio but I don’t know enough about it in order to debug it and researching it has proven fruitless.
Basically, my headset (HyperX Cloud 2) shows up under alsamixer, but not under the sound panel under settings. I managed to somehow get it to display after unplugging it and plugging it back in but even then it would not function. It does work, if I unplug the headset from it’s USB soundcard it came with and use the 3.5mm jack on my front panel.
The interesting thing is, as I was distro hopping to find one I really like, I had this exact same issue on Fedora 25, but not on Debian 8, Elementary, or CentOS. So I’m assuming that it’s related to a version of something that’s installed or the lack of something being installed.
I appreciate any assistance and apologize if I’m being an idiot (very new to linux desktops).
Thanks ahead of time.
