The question itself may not be very explanatory. Let me try and clarify it a bit. I'm running Pop!_OS 20.04 LTS on a PC. I'm also using a pair of Wireless USB headphones (Razer Nari) with two outputs.
What I am trying to achieve is to have STEREO output for my headphones. There are 2 outputs (one for 'gaming' and one for 'chat'. The 'gaming' one is stereo (at least on Windows) and the 'chat' one is mono (again, at least on Windows).
My issue is that I can't set pulseaudio to use stereo for my headphones' analog output (the gaming one).
In Sound Settings, I have "Analog Output - Razer Nari" and "Multichannel Output - Razer Nari". Each of them is tied to a mode on my headphones (note the game and chat icons in this photo). They both work when I switch to them from Sound settings but they are both MONO.
- When switching to Analog Output, I see in
pavucontrolthat for Razer Nari, the Profile changes to Mono Output + Mono Input. (photo here)
- When switching to Multichannel Output, I see in
pavucontrolthat for Razer Nari, the Profile changes to Multichannel Output + Mono Input. (photo here)
What I've tried so far:
- switching USB ports;
- resettings pulse settings with
sudo dpkg-reconfigure pulse;
- uninstalling pulseEffects;
- resetting pulseEffects with
sudo dpkg-reconfigure pulseeffects;
- removing all user configurations of pulse and pulseeffects from
How can I force PulseEffects to use what I want or manually set my headphones to what channel(s) I want?
