audio trouble (SOLVED)

#1

Post by old_guy » Fri Jun 14, 2019 7:45 am

I was messing around and probably updated too many things from the test repo.
When audio was working properly the pulseaudio volumn control > configuration showed 3 profiles:
GK107 HDMI Audio Controler
Webcam C270
Built-in Audio
and I could play from my computer speakers.

Now pulseaudio volumn control > configuration shows only 2 profiles:
GK107 HDMI Audio Controler
Webcam C270
and I cannot play audio through my computer speakers. It only uses the HDMI monitor.

I set up another test user and that does the same. If I log into root, I can play through my computer speakers, because pulseaudio doesn't seem to connect.

inxi shows:
Audio: Device-1: AMD SBx00 Azalia driver: snd_hda_intel
Device-2: NVIDIA GK107 HDMI Audio driver: snd_hda_intel
Device-3: Logitech Webcam C270 type: USB driver: snd-usb-audio,uvcvideo
Sound Server: ALSA v: k4.19.0-1-amd64

Any suggestions other than reinstall.
Earl

You might try the advice here... I have used it successfully after majorly borking my setup:

HDMI works off Nvidia drivers you don't seem to have them installed.

pulseaudio manager = pauvcontrol ?

The update from the test repo of timidity
from 2.13.2
to 2.14.0-8
was what messed up everything.
I deleted timidity, then had to go through resetting default sinks etc. for pulseaudio, then installed the old timidity.
Things seem to be back to my "normal".
