I am using Ubuntu 17.10. I play audio or video but sound is not going through the headphones.

I tested everything, my headphones are OK, Ubuntu recognizes my headphones and its microphone is working well. When I play something on internal speakers it works but when I put my headphones it gives no sound.

  • Please click in the sound indicator and make sure to explicitly select the headphones.
