No output sound [pulseaudio]

Hi Archusers: I've upgrade my system where libpulse and pulseaudio version 3 has been upgraded yet, but, my laptop (DELL XPS L501X) no send output sound through speakers, only with headphones. I don't undestarnd how need to configure "/etc/pulse/{client,daemon}.conf" and "/etc/pulse/default.pa" files. I have only make a copy of ".conf" files to ~.pulse directory.

Sorry for my bad English and for my novice knowledge.
Greetings.

Re: No output sound [pulseaudio]

I've installed the plugins and I don't have "snd_pcm_oss" module, but my system is without output sound. I don't know if I need to edit ".conf" or "default.pa" files.
But, if I make a downgrade to pulseaudio version 2, my speakers come back.

Thanks.

Re: No output sound [pulseaudio]

Hello, I have the same issue on my Fujitsu AH530 laptop.

After upgrading Pulseaudio I noticed that alsa speaker's volume is set to 0 every time I boot and every time I connect the headphones to my laptop.

I tried to change manually the speaker's volume with:

alsamixer -c 0

(there is a "speaker" setting to change) and the sound comes back but I don't know how to make this persistent.

Any ideas? However, I think this a bug but I don't know where to report it: any help on this is also appreciated.

Re: No output sound [pulseaudio]

I'm facing the same problem here. So far, the only solution is to downgrade both pulseaudio and libpulse. My laptop is a Dell XPS 15.

Re: No output sound [pulseaudio]

I was about to start a new thread about this, as I too have the issue. Strangely, it doesn't occur on my Asus laptop, only on my main machine. Every time I boot the computer, the mixer in XFCE has the volume set to zero and it set to mute, so I have to adjust the volume and deselect mute. This occurs regardless of whether I select pulseaudio or ALSA as the playback option.

Re: No output sound [pulseaudio]

Could you check the output of journalctl -b?

I would like to see whether your problem is related to mine.

Re: No output sound [pulseaudio]

I've downgraded the packages libpulse and pulseaudio, now everything works fine.
I also put those packages at the ignore list in pacman.conf.
I will wait, if there will be solution for Pulseaudio 3.

I plugged/unplugged many times my headphones: the "authkey.c" log lines was already there before plugging/unplugging headphones.

Does my log make sense for anyone? All suggestions are welcome smile

Hi Kleinermann9, can you explain me (or give some link to) how to downgrade packages and putting them in pacman ignore list?
Thank you in advance.

Hi!

This is the Wiki-Page for Downgrading Packages: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Do … g_Packages

This the Wiki-Page for Pacman: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman --> look at point 1.1.1.

My pacman.conf looks like this now --> Line 25

# Pacman won't upgrade packages listed in IgnorePkg and members of IgnoreGroup
IgnorePkg   =libpulse
IgnorePkg   =pulseaudio
#IgnoreGroup =


Hopefully i could help you.

Re: No output sound [pulseaudio]

This is driving me nuts. Even a downgrade does not fix the no output sound problem. I still get tons of these [pulseaudio] sink-input.c: Failed to create sink input: sink is suspended.
errors.

Any ideas?

EDIT:

This error is resolved. pulseaudio created apparently some session files with the structure 60fc88444b294e6aa3af980471f5d528-* in my ~/.pulse folder. After deleting these files and restarting the sink is suspended issue is gone.

Re: No output sound [pulseaudio]

I had the same issues (Dell XPS L501X). I had to downgrade pulseaudio and libpulse from 3.0.2 to 2.1-1 which solved my problem.

Re: No output sound [pulseaudio]

How can I downgrade both libpulse and pulseaudio? There're a lot of dependencies. Do I have to use --force switch?

Re: No output sound [pulseaudio]

I have 2 solutions:

1.- Downgrade pulseaudio to version 2, for this, make the nexts steps:

#pacman -Rdd libpulseaudio pulseaudio

If you have libpulse and pulseaudio 2.X version, install it with "#pacman -U libpulse-2.X pulseaudio-2.X", otherwise, download and install it. or compile it smile
Reboot your system and you have a fully speaker sound (sorry for my English)

2.- Make a custom ".service" file for this step, I make one (speaker.service), but this not load.

"speaker.service":

[Unit]
Description=Set Speaker at 100% volume

[Service]
ExecStart=/usr/bin/upspeaker

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

Where "/usr/bin/upspeaker" is a Bash script, where its contains:
"upspeaker"

#!/bin/bash

amixer -c 0 sset Speaker 100% > /dev/null

After, I've chmod "upspeaker" script with 777 (I know, all permissions to everyone), or you can only type "chmod +x upspeaker"
Now, type: "#systemctl enable speaker.service && systemctl start speaker.service"
For now, this is my solutions, the first solution works fine, but the second (service) not. If you type "systemctl start speaker.service" this command fix the problem, but when you reboot your system, Speaker volume is set to 0.

¿Any idea? ¿Any sugesstion?
If an archer can edit and fix the second solution, please post it.
Thanks and sorry sorry for my bad English (if you can call it English ^^)

Re: No output sound [pulseaudio]

Is there a reason the devs haven't released a new pulseaudio build to resolve this? It's annoying having to unmute and set the volume every time I login.

That, together with my wallpaper disappearing and XFCE not functioning correctly the first time I log in after booting is leaving me wanting to boot into Fedora 18 more and more.

Re: No output sound [pulseaudio]

I've opened the bug at freedesktop.org.

Bug 59217 - Speaker volume is set to 0 when plugging/unplugging headphones

Now let's see what happens ...

Re: No output sound [pulseaudio]

I was having this problem with an XPS 15 (L502X), and what seems to have fixed it is going to Gnome's sound settings (GUI), turning the output toggle switch from Off to On, which made some small amount of sound, then opening alsamixer in terminal, selecting my sound card with F6 and raising the "Speaker" volume from 00. At 00 there was a very very low amount of volume coming out of the speakers. Nothing else here seemed to fix it, stumbled on this fix. For the record I had headphone audio without a problem.
