This happens also with “aplay -D sysdefault” on host, but the same command works fine on Armbian. The device is a Pinebook Pro. I’ve been trying to fix this for weeks now.
Here’s what I know:
- the issue is with the host OS as the audio from the same chroot can be muted on Armbian (XFCE) but not on Manjaro (tried KDE Plasma and XFCE)
- tried both “sudo chroot” and “schroot -c” with same results
- Armbian XFCE uses “xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin” to handle volume control (Fn keys) while Manjaro KDE Plasma uses “plasma-pa”
- Armbian lists more devices with “aplay -L” because of “libasound2-plugins” package (“alsa-plugins” on Manjaro)
Any help is much appreciated!
