When I fresh installed KDE Plasma on my Dell xps 9710, I was able to hear audio via my headphone. However, today, I don’t hear anything on my headphone.
When I manually switch to “Speaker”, I hear the audio with no issues.
When I unplug and plug my headphone into the jack, Manjaro detects my headphone, but no sound.
In my “Configure Audio Devices” screen, I noticed a section called “Inactive cards”. In this section, it displays “GA 106 High Definition Audio controller” with “Off”. And the “Off” drop down has no other choices.
I did my best to search for a solution, but I didn’t find anything which is promising. Besides, I didn’t want to mess up my audio configuration to make it worse.
The GA106 controller is part of the Nvidia system. The laptops sound system is an ACL711. Plugging in Headphones should interrupt sound to the speakers (normal behaviour in most systems).
When you switch sound to ‘speaker’, what other options are there?
