Recently I installed Antergos-19.1 on my HP Omen laptop. Speakers work, but when I plug in headphones to audio jack, there no sound is produced at all. The output of the command pactl list sinks |& grep -E "Sink|Ports|analog-ou" is :

Sink #0
    analog-output-speaker: Speakers (priority: 10000, not available)
    analog-output-headphones: Headphones (priority: 9000, available)
Active Port: analog-output-headphones

Therefore, headphones are detected and is set to be active port. How to solve this problem?

  1. Make sure your headphones are plugged in
  2. Run:
$alsactl restore

I generally have it mapped in my ~/.zshrc as

alias fixaudio="alsactl restore"
  • Thanks for your answer. Unfortunately, that didn't work. You can find more details of my problem in antergos forum. The file /var/lib/alsa/asound.state has following lines at the start: control.1 { iface MIXER name 'Headphone Playback Volume' value.0 87 value.1 87 comment { access 'read write' type INTEGER count 2 range '0 - 87' dbmin -6525 dbmax 0 dbvalue.0 0 dbvalue.1 0 } Commented May 16, 2019 at 11:22
