For some reason, on my Manjaro system, sound will only play out of my monitor no matter what I set the output device to. Any help is appreciated.
Update: I can’t adjust the volume either.
You need to provide more info about your setup, eg. what hardware you use etc.
Also just a FYI i use an USB-External speaker with the sound output of my monitor pluged into it, which also doesn’t give any sound sometimes.
But that is corrected by turning off-then-on-again the USB device using it’s own buttons so it re-initializes.
What device do you want sound to be played from. Are you using pulseaudio, what output devices are shown.
I have tried to play out of both the built-in audio jack and through bluetooth. All the audio devices are shown, but no matter what I set it to, it plays out of the monitor speakers instead. Also, I appear to be using pulseaudio.
I am using Pulseaudio, with my monitor playing sound from displayport from my GTX 1650 super. My current motherboard is an Asus ROG STRIX B550-F GAMING motherboard. Does this help?
are you using volume control
pavucontrol to select desired output device by clicking ‘set as fallback’
want is the output of
Doing this, the sound still plays out of my monitor.
Here is the output you asked for:

It looks like ALSA is seeing the card. ALC1220 which I believe is the ‘ROG SupremeFX8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC S1220A’.
Ensure audio hardware is enabled in BIOS. Check it also isn’t turned off in
pavucontrol under ‘configuration’ tab.
I believe the ALC1220 uses module snd_hda_intel.
check audio modules loaded, what is the output of
lsmod | grep snd
double check soundcards, what is the output of
you could try a ALSA speaker test specifying the device.
Nothing is turned off in pavucontrol, here are the other outputs you wanted:

I can’t find the bluetooth device audio device, I don’t know which of these that would be. Nothing audio related appears to be disabled in BIOS, one other note is that audio works perfectly with Windows, so the computer itself must be okay.
check in terminal program
alsamixer that output isn’t muted
could be a clash between Windows and Linux driver, cold boot to Linux
From this thread
driver clash between nvidia (hdmi) and ALC1220 sound hardware
I’ve already cold-booted. The other thread you linked did not solve my problem, and alsamixer confirms the volume is not muted. Sound can play, but no matter what I set it to it plays out of my monitor speakers.
did you try hdajackretask ? it is part of the alsa tools bungles that is 1.5MB in the official repositories
I’ll try that when I get back
I’m not sure why but the sound has suddenly started working properly again. But I will note that hdajackretask only sees the displayport output.
