Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I know that if I plug in my ear phones, I have to go to Sound Settings and switch to the earphones in order for Ubuntu to play through them, instead of my speakers.

I was wondering if there was a way to make Ubuntu automatically switch the sound settings. If so, why isn't this default?
