I recently installed Arch for the first time on my HP DV6 laptop. I had been using Ubuntu for around five years and never had this issue. Playing sound works fine from the speakers, but it is muted when I plug in my headphones. I pulled up the sound preferences pane and it seems to recognize when I plug and unplug the headphones, but even after searching online, I am unable to find a solution.
Is there some setting by default with ALSA that mutes headphones? Does anyone know what I should try? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Have you tried configuring ALSA ?
Maybe have a look at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ad … Sound_Card or The ALSA entry in generel.
I had this problem with my laptop and had to configure /ect/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf to get sound from headphones.
Do you mean laptop speakers or standalone speakers pluged in jack ?
