Sound ONLY working over HDMI?

Mon Dec 04, 2017 7:33 am

Recently Solus has stopped letting applications pass sound over either my laptop's built in speakers or headphones. It will only output sound over HDMI.

If I go into the Sounds menu and test the speakers or headphones they will play the test sounds (front left and front right) but Chrome/Firefox/Audacity/GnomeMPV will not output any sound.

For reference the laptop is a Thinkpad X1 Carbon

Solved.

And to not be a zortch and the solution was clearing the pulseaudio config and restarting it with:

Code: Select all

rm -r ~/.config/pulse*
pulseaudio -k
