My microphone cannot work

Hello, I am using archlinux with bspwm. I have already installed pulseaudio and alsa before posting the topic. The trouble is that the output is normal but I can't find the input device. So when I use zoom, I can't speak unfortunatelly. The pavucontrol cannot find the input device. I'm using Lenovo Xiaoxin Pro 16 2021 UHD now. Please help me! Thanks a lot!

Also make sure your xinitrc follows the template mentioned in https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Xinit#xinitrc and heeds the blue note from that section.

Re: My microphone cannot work

You need to actually select a profile that exposes the mic, look at the configuration tab in pavucontrol or run

pacmd set-card-profile alsa_card.pci-0000_00_1f.3 output:analog-stereo+input:analog-stereo

Yes, it works partly. The input device has appeared in the pavucontrol, but it seems that I still can't record my voice. No matter in Zoom or in obs-studio, the microphone can't work anymore. sad

Re: My microphone cannot work

Repost during a "not working" recording

sudo fuser -v /dev/snd/*
pacmd list-sources
pacmd list-source-outputs

does the mic actually work, have you tested it on another system/OS? Does the mic have a physical mute switch that isn't propagated to the OS?
