lshal of my computer
Description of problem:
PulseAudio selects the digital output of the sound card instead of the analog output. However the internal speakers of my notebook are only connected to the analog output. This happened for the first time after I undocked my laptop with the "Undock" button on the Dock (Lenovo ThinkPad T61p with Advanced Mini Dock)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
no sound via internal speakers
sound via internal speakers
After the update today I found the "Configuration" tab in the gnome-mixer applet. I changed the profile to "Output Analog Stereo + Input Analog Stereo". No it seems to be fixed. But i'll have an eye if it switches again if I undock.
Sorry, I meant pavucontrol.
Probably some application blocked access to the analog audio, PA then tries to find an alternative profile to switch to which is usually SPDIF. Once you change back PA will remember.
