I somehow managed to screw up my audio configuration (maybe it was a jointed force of me and an update). It started with bluetooth not working. After reinstallation of pulseaudio, bluez-alsa-utils and some dilettantish digging in default profiles bluetooth returned. However, now HDMI output and profiles of my NVIDIA graphics / audio card are messed up: in alsamixer only one "< S/PDIF >" and in pavucontrol only one HDMI/Display port appears (the card has actually one DVI, HDMI and 3 Display ports). Also only one port is listed under pacmd list-cards or list-sinks and only few profiles seem to be available (in other linux machines with similar cards there are dozens of profiles).

I can switch of and on bluetooth and the right profile appears in pacucontrol or in audio settings but if I connect an additional monitor (TV screen) via HDMI cable, no additional profile appears and either no sound comes (it stays in the primary monitor) or it comes from both monitors simultaneously. Video transfer on the other hand works fine. Interestingly xrandr --verbose lists all relevant ports (see outputs below).

I think, I somehow deleted or messed up an essential audio configuration file but I do not know which and how to restore that configuration. Who can help me?

here the relevant diagnostics: inxi -Fxz

  • Log off, log in in Linux console, e.g. tty2 (Ctrl + Alt + F2), run rm -rf ~/.local/state/wireplumber. Go back to your display manager and check if everything works. Jan 3, 2023 at 16:52

  1. Log off
  2. log in in Linux console, e.g. tty2 (Ctrl + Alt + F2)
  3. run rm -rf ~/.local/state/wireplumber
  4. go back to your display manager (Alt + F1 or F7) and check if everything works.

To think of it, maybe I should file a bug report/missing feature request because I've done exactly this several times myself. The feature would be something like: wireplumber --resetsettings. And it's done.
