may you post the output of ‘uname -a’ from your manjaro to understand what kernel you are using and it’s far better to give us information to help .
this is mandatory
Welcome to Manjaro!
Please read this: [HowTo] Provide System Information
and press the three dots … below your post and press the to give us more information so we can see what’s really going on.
Now we know the symptom of the disease, but we need some more probing to know where the origin lies…
An inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host --width would be the minimum required information for us to be able to help you. (Personally Identifiable Information like serial numbers and MAC addresses will be filtered out by the above command)
Also, please copy-paste that output in-between 3 backticks ``` at the beginning and end of the code/text.
P.S. If you want to notify me that you did provide this information, please this message and I’ll come back and have another look.
P.P.S. If you enter a bit more details in your profile, we can also see which Desktop Environment you’re using, which exact CPU/GPU or Kernel, … you have without typing it every time
Thank you very much for taking the time to help out
So I am back on Manjaro now - profile is updated with relevant info and the outputs of uname -r and inxi can be found in the end of the post.
So what I have done is that I tried to install the driver as described here on Linux Mint 20.3. It worked as well as the author described, but at least now I know that it can work.
On Manjaro I have installed the 5.4 kernel, chosen it from the GRUB menu and installed the headers for 5.4.
Now when I try to install the driver I get this output:
linux kernel headers not found in /usr/src:
Debian (eg Ubuntu): /usr/src/linux-headers-5.4.173-1-MANJARO
assuming the linux kernel headers package is not installed
please install the appropriate linux kernel headers package:
sudo apt install linux-headers-MANJARO
When looking the /usr/src it is empty, so I guess that is why the script will not install it. Then the problem is, where are the header files located in Manjaro? Further should the install script be changed to reflect the new location? Or can we create a symlink to the correct location from /usr/src? Or I am missing something very basic?
are you sure at alsamixer, please open it again and press “m”-key. does it change to “mm” (muted) or was it muted ? make sure that there is no “mm” for muting at alsamixer.
did you install “pavucontrol” from the software-center?
yes, please install it and make sure that alsamixer doesn’t mute the output. if you’ve installed pavucontrol we’ll check this. seems your driver is working because it accepts changes at alsamixer but propably your output-device isn’t set properly. this can be adjusted with pavucontrol.
there is also some weird, alsa and pipewire is active. some had trouble but others didn’t.
