Hi, since about 3-4 weeks, almost always when I first login there is no sound device and everything is slugish. If I close that session and login again, it works fine. Also probably unrelated the auto-hide latte docks make a flicker on the border of the screen after opening a program that is maximized. Also probably unrelated when shutting down it usually takes a really long time waiting for something to close, that “something” is not always the same.
I need help to diagnose. I’m using TW KDE Build20220725 and Nvida drivers. also there is no recent hardware changes.
Hi, Hardware setting priority, if available, is 1st yast and 2nd system preferences.
When you do an installation and without doing anything, you have sound, it is possible that it has a generic one.
The steps are usually:
A)- There is no Card: 1º Add Card- 2º Configure automatically 3º go to others and select as main card.
A-1) Restart audio server.
A-2) Configure in System Preferences, if applicable.
B) There is a sound card: 1st click Edit 2nd choose automatic configuration 3rd go to OTHERS (bottom right) and define as main card.
B-1) Restart audio server.
B-2) Configure in System Preferences, if applicable.
Inxi, you can determine the states of the audio servers, with the extended sequence of extra 3 or -xxx : example :
inxi -xxxA :
Although more information can be expanded, this is enough,
Also with the command speaker.test , it is easier to do it from yast —others — sound playback test or in system preferences–audio-- and in advanced , test the channels.
Remember that to test, you have to restart the audio server, configure without restarting, it will most likely not work.
