Hi there, this is my first message here, and I came with a quite interesting/weird situtation. I want to use my headset with my desktop computer, but I’m not lucky. Am I sure the headset works properlly? Yes, I am. I use this very same headset with my laptop and everything goes fine. The laptop and the desktop machine runs Fedora 31, kernel 5.5.9-200.fc31.x86_64
What does happen with my desktop machine? I have no sound from software when using headphones. It doesn’t matter if the headphones are connected to “line out” or “headphones frontal” jacks.
Why do I say “sound from software”? Because I can speak in the microphone, and I hear what I say. I can even use the mixer (alsamixer, or the graphical GNome Shell mixer) and mute the microphone, or the headphones. However, when I want to listen to some music I just hear nothing. This behaviour makes me thing that the jacks are working fine, and that the motherboard is capturing the sound and playing it back.
One curious thing is that the GUI mixer shows me that applications (music player, browser, etc) is playing audio, and the sound bar goes up and down. However, I listen to nothing. The only way I have now to listen to music from software is using a bluetooth device.
