Having a bit of a strange issue on 16.04. I just got some new speakers for the office (3.5mm jack), but unfortunately they don't seem to be recognized by my computer. I also have a Yeti microphone that's plugged in via USB.
When the microphone is plugged in, Sound settings shows only the microphone as a valid output device. I can select it and play sound through headphones connected to it, but can't make sound come through the speakers no matter what I try. This screenshot shows my sound settings when the mic is plugged in:
When the microphone is unplugged, no devices are listed under Sound settings for Output, but the sound will play through the speakers just fine.
The issue is that I would like to use the microphone as a microphone, and run my audio output through the speakers now. How do I get my computer to recognize the speakers as a valid device with the microphone plugged in?
