I’m new to Ubuntu and the sound issue is giving me headaches. I’m using headphones however when I check the sound settings nothing is listed
I found a solution to this a week ago by installing pulse audio volume control and I selected headphones in output devices. However, when I do that, the sound is distorted and it cuts out the whole time. The sound is similar to that of a worn-out record.
I tried restarting the computer but then it defaults to line out again!
By the way I use windows in the same computer and it works fine so I don’t think it’s a hardware issue.
oh and this hasn’t been always like that, I used to have no problems with audio (maybe some update ruined it?)
I already tried
sudo apt-get remove –purge pulseaudio
sudo apt-get remove –purge alsa-base
and reinstalled. I also tried
sudo alsa force-reload
I’m using ubuntu 18.04
