Doesn't show/connect front mic

Asked by MadhuSoodanan on 2021-04-07

Ubuntu 20.04.1

My PC doesn't show input device -- Front mic. But rear mic is ok. It works well. But even after I connected the mic in the front mic port it doesn't show as enabled. I used "alsamixer" in terminal and set it correctly. But it didn't show my front mic device.

Even if it doesn't show the input device there, I could connect it in audacity. I chose the correct recording device in it. Now it is working.
