I see that I’m not the only one having issues with an Asus laptop(latest Manjaro Gnome). The backlit on the keyboard can be turned on with the FN+F3 keys but the sound is a real pain. External speakers work well through the 3.5mm jack but there is nothing coming out of the speakers. I have tried some tips from this forum but nothing seems to work. This is a brand new laptop. The bad part of this is that the sound doesn’t work in none of the live distros I tried. Debian 12 Gnome nothing, MX linux XFce nothing. It seems that there is a driver issue because it says that there is a an Intel HDA audio.

I’ll try a couple of more distros just to see if it works somewhere and for now stick with the external speakers…
