• Built-in microphone not working


    Hi!

    I’m a new user of antergos.
    I’ve been using other linux distros since some time, eventually landing happily on arch 2 months ago.

    Everything works like a charm, except for the built-in mic of my Asus X54C.
    I’ve tried the Wiki, googled the problem, but I’ve got no luck since today.

    Your help would be really appreciated. 🙂

    Thanks a lot!!

    Some outputs, if you need more of them please ask (I’m not an expert of linux)

  • Hi,

    What does pavucontrol show? (check input devices tab).

    Oh, if you don’t have it, install it with:

    sudo pacman -S pavucontrol
    

    Cheers!

  • What karasu said, in pavucontrol, just check what recording device is chosen (while you use it) and change it to your microphone and all is well.

  • It was pavucontrol ! actually in the Configuration tab my profile was set on Analog stereo output then I couldn’t choose any input device. Switched to Analog stereo duplex and now it works!

    Thanks, mark as solved!
