Re: No sound in i3wm

How are you trying to make sounds.  In general, i3wm is fairly mute.
What is the output of aplay -Ll   ?

Re: No sound in i3wm

how are you starting i3? If via startx make sure you properly start your user session https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Xinit#xinitrc

Also output of

sudo fuser -v /dev/snd/*
pacmd list-sinks
pacmd list-sink-inputs

during attempted playback.
