    Hi there, fresh install of linux mint 18.2 - Cinnamon and when I plug in my headphones to the jack on the front panel of my desktop ... no love. If I leave them plugged in and reboot it works just fine until I unplug them and plug them back in.



    I've checked the obvious things like mute on, which it isn't.

    Not really sure what information I can post that would be of help diagnosing the issue so please let me know if there's any I can provide that would make this a bit easier to help with.

    Thanks a bunch!

    Hi @Tubby

    ... and welcome to linux.org :)

    I saw your post and haven't had time to swing by before now, regrets. Not sure if I can help or not, but I run Sonya Cinnamon amongst others, so that may help?

    Are the headphones generic-style or a name brand? And have you used them before with Linux, if so which?

    You could print at Terminal, the output of

    Code:
    inxi -Fxs
    and paste it here, that might be a good start?

    I have a friend in mind whom is a member here, and I could draw his attention to this Topic, too.

    Cheers

    Hi Tubby - have you checked your settings on the SOUND tab in the menu under "All Applications"?

    Hi Mate, I was remiss in not thanking you for that inxi -Fxs output ... nice rig :D

    What I think is particularly good to know is the line from audio which features in part:

    Code:
    snd_hda_intel bus-ID: 00:1f.3 Sound: ALSA
    and why is that both snd_hda_intel and ALSA feature in this article I found:

    https://askubuntu.com/questions/132440/headphone-jack-not-working

    Normally I am cautious of referring Users to old articles in case "times have changed" and they are obsolete. This one starts a little over 5 years ago, but towards the bottom features input from 2016, so to my eye it appears current, and you may find a solution there that works for you.

    Be aware of substituting your own model for that, of say, a Dell, for some of the instructions.

    That being said, I will bow out and watch from the sidelines, with interest.

    Good luck

    Wizard
