No sound after upgrade

even with the today update the problem continues

Mine is not working as well. In Fact, I used to see my headphones (steel series 800) I dont see them for audio output. The Mic is still working for the headset. I have a Sound Blaster XIfi that is working correctly as well. This is the only reason I have any sound.

Cinnamon is my Favorite Desktop. I do everything possible to not use anything Ubuntu. This is why I dont use Linux Mint or POPOS. Hoping this resolves itself soon. My other two PC’s dont have this sound issue with Manjaro.

I installed the 5.9 kernel and the sound started working again

Thank you for the info. I will try that and report back. :slight_smile:

5.9 did not boot up due to LightDM failure. I am on Cinnamon. I will have to wait another kernel update to test this out.

here with kde it works perfectly, it only slows down when I’m transferring very large files in dolphin

Strangely it went back to mute after the last updates

On Manjaro KDE (testing repo) with Creative Audigy1, I can choose analog stereo output or analog stereo input profile, but I do not have “analog stereo duplex” profile, so I can not use my microphone.

Clearing pulse config file had no effect. It is the same with both 5.7 and 5.8 kernels.

Any ideas?

There is the solution to my problem:

So it will require a newer PulseAudio to fix my issue with my Audigy card. (mic input on my motherboard works, just sounds quite bad)

is it possible to update the pulseaudio manually or will it have to wait for it to be updated?

There is a pulseaudio-git in BAUH from Arch, but it fails to build. So I think not.

You could install the latest development version of Pulseaudio v13.99 pulseaudio-git from AUR

but some packages have to be removed to be able to change to the AUR version:

HP Envy - Sound does not work in Manjaro 20.1 PLASMA
I had first to remove libao, fluidsynth, lib32-fluidsynth and manjaro-pulse - after that I could install pulseaudio-git - having installed pulseaudio-git I added libao, fluidsynth, lib32-fluidsynth and manjaro-pulse
