I have my notebook connected with my monitor via HDMI. If I change the output in the sound settings in my Ubuntu 18.04 the sound plays over my monitor, how it should be. Thats fine, but now if I connect my extra Logitech speakers with the monitor via the audio input, the sound still gets played over the monitor not over the extra speakers. Thanks for any help!

  • This is not about Information Security. You probably meant to go to Ask Ubuntu. – MechMK1 Nov 11 '20 at 16:52

  • Information Security is for things like hacking. This is not about hacking. – MechMK1 Nov 11 '20 at 19:35

You can easily change the audio output device. Just go to Settings --> Sound --> Output device and select the audio device from the drop down.

  • I have only the Option to select Notebook or HDMI, but Not the speakers which are connected with the Monitor... – Zacharias Kreisvorher Nov 11 '20 at 19:10
  • Can you check that if the speakers are working on any other OS but on the system? The speakers should've shown in the dropdown if they were properly connected. – Heisenberg Nov 12 '20 at 6:52
  • If I plug the speakers directly to my notebook it works! Only if I plug em to the monitor it does not work... But would be nicer if I could connect em to the monitor... One moment I try it on an other OS. – Zacharias Kreisvorher Nov 12 '20 at 8:49
  • Tried it with a Windows 10 OS it's also not working. For clarity: the speakers it self are working perfekt if I plug them to the notebook direct. Only if I plug them to my monitor they dont work... – Zacharias Kreisvorher Nov 12 '20 at 13:12
  • Topic can bei closed!, problem was the broken audio output Adapter on the monitor – Zacharias Kreisvorher Nov 12 '20 at 17:54
