Fresh Install No Audio

After installing and starting the pulseaudio daemon and restarting. I install pavucontrol and unmuted all the audio. Though it seems that I have two sound cards on this laptop.

Re: Fresh Install No Audio

Do you have the sof-firmware package installed?

No, it didn't "fix" anything. It just shifted the brokeness one space to the right. - jasonwryan

Re: Fresh Install No Audio

yes, Sir
also installed pulseaudio-alsa and pulseaudio-bluetooth.
I haven't installed anything from the AUR.

Re: Fresh Install No Audio

I copied /etc/pulse files to ~/.config/pulse since there were no files in that directory.
output of pacmd list-sinks | grep -Ei 'index:|name:'

* index: 0
        name: <alsa_output.pci-0000_00_09.2.analog-stero>

Now I trying to figure out where in the ~/.config/pulse/ to I include the above information.
after doing this headphones work which is fine for my needs on a laptop. external speakers still not working [Solved]
