(Solved) No sound out of headphones

I can hear sound from speakers.  When I insert headphones sound to speakers stops however, no sound to headphones.  When I load pavucontrol, I get "Establishing connection to pulseaudio. Please wait..."

This laptop has a Realtek ALC292 sound card.  Hopefully someone can assist me.  I wonder if there is some kind of sound driver I need.

Regards,

I dont know about pavucontrol because I dont use pulseaudio, but I could try to use alsamixer to see the level of headphones.

Hi

Try with alsamixer on a terminal. Pulseaudio is not enabled by default on Devuan and is not really needed. You can use either alsamixer or in your gui add an alsamixer (for instance volumeicon-alsa), or enable pulseaudio by doing the following: Pulseaudio


- If you have no sound, make sure the following line in
   /etc/pulse/client.conf.d/00-disable-autospawn.conf is commented as
   shown here:


   #autospawn=no

Have a nice day

Are these USB headphones or do they use a conventional (mini) jack connection?

Can we see the output of this command with the headphones plugged in:

amixer

Re: (Solved) No sound out of headphones

Alsamixer did it. Alsamixer showed headphones sliders white out, I turned them gray and pushed sliders up.

Thank you all for your replies.
