• One jack headset not working as intended in Linux

    I have a laptop with one jack and I have IEMs with one jack, I can use both the speakers and the microphone thanks to Realtek HD Audio in Windows.

    In Linux, however, I cannot use the microphone of my IEMs. Are there any packages that I can install that could help me, or is this impossible on Linux?

    (I don’t know if this should go on Multimedia and Gaming or Kernel & Hardware, so I’ll just put it here.)

  • it is multimedia so right place…

    Realtek HD Audio is not enough info here:

    pactl list sinks
    wget http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-info.sh && sh alsa-info.sh

    This will give you a link with pasted advanced informations.

    Oh i was on the wrong boat here…

    You want to use mic from headset?
    can you try open alsamixer inside terminal, press [F6] choose your card and unmute [M] the mic, and play with mic boost also.


  • Well, it still uses the laptop’s integrated microphone :P
    I don’t think I will ever find a way to use the headset’s microphone in Linux. I have been waiting for years for the feature and finally decided to ask about it. Doesn’t seem like I’m going to have any luck with this though.

  • do you try pavucontrol to enable the right mic?
    and possible to use paprefs to enable multicast ?

  • The other recording devices on pavucontrol do nothing.
    Tried a few combinations in paprefs, also to no avail.

  • can you give me the exact model of your notebook?

    ASUS X555LB (I actually have an ASUS K555LB which is a slightly downgraded version (1366x766 display instead of 1920x1080, the outer shell’s design is less attractive). But Windows and Linux recognize it as an ASUS X555LB as it uses the X555LB board. So, let’s go with that, I guess.)

  • @ensarkilincxo said in One jack headset not working as intended in Linux:

    ASUS X555LB

    sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/snd-hda-intel.conf

    and add the following line:

    options snd-hda-intel index=0 model=laptop-dmic

    save with [ctrl+X] and reboot

  • Still the same, uses the notebook’s integrated microphone.
