I am using an old Sony Vaio. Everything works fine, including sound from the laptop speakers. However, every time I try to use the headphones from the side jack, they do not work
I have tried:
$ sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
but the file does not show me the name of the sound card as it was suggested in other posts.
I have tried changing settings in Alsamixer, to no avail.
I have also tried changing the headphone configurations using:
$ cd /usr/share/pulseaudio/alsa-mixer/paths/ $ sudo cp analog-output-headphones.conf analog-output-headphones.bak $ sudo nano analog-output-headphones.conf
In the latter case, I tried to change a set of 'switch' from 'off' to 'on', and 'volume' from 'merge' to 'ignore', as suggested in other posts. I tried to change these in different elements, e.g. [Element Speaker], but nothing I tried has worked so far.
Pulseaudio seems to recognise the headphones when I put the jack on, but no sound comes from them.
Can you please help me solve this issue? Thanks in advance
