Hi, I have 2 questions
How do you configure audio profiles and completely disable inputs? I have a soundcard with lots of inputs/outputs and i only want the 1 output to be enabled ( in windows, i can easily disable it in the sound panel)
The card also supports 7.1 what is not listed in the profiles menu and i want to add it to the profiles menu in sound settings but have no idea how to…
I am also completely lost on what sound server my system uses, as there’s ALSA, pulseaudio and pipewire…
API: ALSA v: k6.1.31-2-MANJARO status: kernel-api
Server-1: JACK v: 1.9.22 status: off
Server-2: PipeWire v: 0.3.70 status: off
Server-3: PulseAudio v: 16.1 status: active
How do i see what process is preventing the system from sleeping/locking? some apps have an option to prevent system from sleeping but also stop the system from auto locking
Similar in KDE System Settings:
Unfortunately I don’t use a sound card with many inputs/outputs, but the principle is the same: you select the profile that the card provides. If there are multiple inputs/outputs, then there will be multiple
Should be listed if it really does. Although I don’t have 7.1 card, it can show that 5.1 profile is there.
inxi output already tells you. I personally only use PipeWire as it can be a drop-in replacement for everything else, it has interface for both PulseAudio and JACK so apps that utilize either will feel right at home, i.e.: no adjustment needed at all.
Can’t be generalized, but perhaps you can keep a
sudo dmesg -w or
sudo journalctl -f window open and see what either spits when you try to sleep and fails.
ALSA is not a sound server, most audio devices require ALSA (except Bluetooth)
Data shows only PulseAudio is active, and PipeWire and JACK are off

Please post more information about audio profiles in PulseAudio
pactl list cards
and ALSA settings for audio outputs
