Feedback on the Dell Inspiron 7590

Asked by Kristiyan Katsarov on 2020-03-05

I am using a new version of the Dell Inspiron 7590 with 4K display and I7 9750H - however on a fresh install of Ubuntu (18.04 LTS or 19.10) the microphone does not work as well as the 3.5mm jack. Am not sure if the certified model is the same as mine, issue page -

Hi Kristiyan,

Sorry to hear able your audio issues. May I please ask you to try and run the OEM-OSP1 kernel on your device? The 7590 was certified with that specific kernel, which may have provided audio fixes. To get this kernel, please run `sudo apt update && sudo apt install linux-oem-osp1`. Please give that a try and let me know if it helps.

Hi Kristiyan,

We recently have this bug:, and it has just been fixed in alsa-lib. Can you update to alsa-lib 1.1.9-0ubuntu1.2?

Hi everyone. I just have installed 20.04 on my dell vostro 7590 i7 9750H . Microphone is working fine, but there is no sound in headphones. So when I plug my headphones it does detect automaically and show in setttings, but no sound. When trying to use various alsamixer switches I discovered that changing the setting 'Input Source',0 does the magic:

eagle:~$ amixer get 'Input Source',0
Simple mixer control 'Input Source',0
  Capabilities: cenum
  Items: 'Headphone Mic' 'Headset Mic'
  Item0: 'Headphone Mic'

eagle:~$ amixer set 'Input Source',0 'Headset Mic'
Simple mixer control 'Input Source',0
  Capabilities: cenum
  Items: 'Headphone Mic' 'Headset Mic'
  Item0: 'Headset Mic'

It seems that in the alsa configuration, the map controls are incorrectly matched.

Can you help with this problem?
