Description Ondřej Budai 2021-04-13 06:51:14 UTC
Description of problem:
I often cannot adjust volume on a laptop speaker. It usually happens if I disconnect the headphone jack and the audio is rerouted into the speaker. I tried both adjusting the volume in the top right Gnome Panel and using multimedia keys but the volume is just stuck.

The workaround is to restart pipewire:
systemctl --user restart pipewire pipewire-pulse

Running this on Thinkpad T480s, Audio device: Intel Corporation Sunrise Point-LP HD Audio (rev 21)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Play audio
2. Disconnect headphones
3. Try to adjust audio volume

Actual results:
Cannot change audio volume

Expected results:
Audio volume is changed

This message is a reminder that Fedora Linux 34 is nearing its end of life.
Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora Linux 34 on 2022-06-07.
It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer
maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a
'version' of '34'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora Linux version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora Linux 34 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora Linux, you are encouraged to change the 'version' to a later version
prior to this bug being closed.
