Comment 1 severin.kunz 2015-06-26 12:07:25 UTC
just checked it agin and it seems that the real problem is that fedora doesn't recognice anymore when the headphones are plugged in or not.

Comment 2 Paulo Andrade 2015-07-19 19:07:03 UTC
It should be generating some acpi event.

Try running:

$ /usr/bin/acpi_listen

and plug/unplug it. If it does not show anything,
it may be required some kernel command line option.

Anyway, component is not 0ad :) It should be
acpid or kernel.

Thank you for the reply.

In the meantime some recent update fixed the bug until some days when some other updates brought it back.

I did that and it told me to install acpid. After installing it and running acpi_listen it brings up the error can't open socket /var/run/acpid.socket: No such file or directory

Thanks, I didn't know where this belongs to.

Comment 4 severin.kunz 2015-08-01 11:06:46 UTC
Again ths bug was fixed by an update between the 25. of July and the 1. August.

Comment 5 severin.kunz 2015-08-01 14:50:23 UTC
I'm sorry, it seemed just to work once, now it doesn't work again. I really hope this can be fixed.

Comment 6 _ 2015-08-25 20:05:46 UTC
This also happens to me on Lenovo x240. Speakers work fine, but headphones do not.

Comment 9 Joe Thompson 2015-11-18 21:56:17 UTC
