Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1003993
Playback connector setting reset to speakers on reboot
Last modified: 2015-02-17 12:02:44 EST
Description of problem:
I prefer to have the audio playback connector set to headphones but whenever I reboot, the setting reverts back to speakers.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Got to Systems and Settings | Multimedia
2. Click on Phonon
3. Select Audio Hardware Setup tab
4. Select Playback in Sound Device dropdown
5. Select Headphones in Connector dropdown
6. Click Apply
7. Reboot and logon
Startup sound comes from speakers Checking the audio settings shows that the connector setting has reverted to speakers
Desired setting of Headphones should be retained across reboots
It does not always require a reboot for the setting to be reverted. Logging out and logging back in after some interval (such as overnight) will also revert the setting. Logging out and immediately logging back in does not. A reboot always does.
This happens whether or not the headphones are plugged in.
When you say you go into systemsettings, are you modifying the device priorities in the Device preference tab? (if not, why not? I think that's what you want to do)
There is only one device listed under all Audio Playback and Audio Recording entries, "Built-in Audio Analog Stereo", so there is no priority to set that I can see.

version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
