What happened before the issue please? What changed?

Mudassir Khan (mmk-wazir) said : #2

Not really sure. I do install different software, mostly graphics drivers like NVIDIA and cuda. Started happening a few days ago. First, it will get resolved when I restart it but now it kinds of permanently gone. It does work with headphones though. Only speakers are not working.

Try:

killall pulseaudio; rm -r ~/.pulse* ~/.config/pulse*

Wait ten seconds then reboot.

Not working.

By the way, the speaker works fine when I dual boot into windows.

Can you help with this problem?
