Hello! I’m having a problem with audio, for some (short, since I always put a lot of) context:
My school gave me a chromebook so I could speak during class instead of using the chat, these tipically come with Linux and Windows, when I tried Linux, it was so old it wouldn’t let me update it, and there was an error when using apt that to fix, I had to update the system.
I ask the person who gave me this machine if I could install a newer, more up to date version with the .iso file I have of manjaro from when I installed it on my machine, they gave me the go-ahead, I set it up as close as I could to the previous os, it installed correctly, microphone and camera worked but audio was silent.
I’ve tried many solutions online but none seem to work:
- Tried setting the correct drivers in alsamixer
- Tried changing devices on the audio mixer
- Tried updating the os
- Tried the solutions in a forum post: Those didn’t do anything, I haven’t tried the ones that require me to compile a kernel with a certain patch because I’m not sure how to do that, and if the patch is already on my kernel (5.10.42-1)
I’ve decided it’s probably better to make a post myself, in advance, here’s the output of inxi -Fuzy

While I’m at it, on the rules it says that commands with output should be in english, I’m not a native english speaker so some text is in spanish, there was a command to set them in english but I didn’t understand how to use it. If I need to run another command, I’d appreciate if you could tell me how to set the output to be in english.
