Hello, any thinkpad user? i have a thinkpad x1 carbon gen8 and it is well known that this model come out of the box with sound issues in linux, i’m new at this so its a little difficult to me to understand all the documentation about this, so i want to know if any manjaro thinkpad user has solved this thing already.
first i installed sof-firmware and my sound card was finally detected, but i still need to deal with the bad sound quality, as not all the channels are enabled.
also one of the options to solve this is to use the development version of PulseAudio14, which is PulseAudio13.99, available on the aur repositories, i tried to install this version via the manjaro software manager to automatically uninstall the pulseaudio13 version installed by default, which is part of the official repos, but it shows me the following messages and warnings
could not satisfy dependencies:
- removing libao breaks dependency ‘libao’ required by cdrdao,
- if possible, remove cdrdao and retry
- removing fluidsynth breaks dependency ‘fluidsynth’ required by gst-plugins-bad,
- if possible, remove gst-plugins-bad and retry
- removing fluidsynth breaks dependency ‘fluidsynth=2.1.5’ required by lib32-fluidsynth,
- if possible, remove lib32-fluidsynth and retry
- removing fluidsynth breaks dependency ‘fluidsynth’ required by manjaro-pulse,
- if possible, remove manjaro-pulse and retry
and then the manager offers me in the summary to remove fluidsynth, libao and mdp as their dependencies are broken if libpulse is removed during the process, i dont know if removing this packages will harm my system, and if intsalling pulseaudio 13.99 manually in the terminal is a valid alternative, hope somebody can help me
