[Bug 1487702] Re: [SATELLITE C50-B, Realtek ALC233, Mic, Internal] No autoswitch


I hate repeating myself, but: "I am just an end-user, so you will have to use plain English with me", as stated before. Your posts are mostly gibberish to me. I don't understand much of what you are trying to say, if anything. And I still don't understand why do you insist this report is incomplete.
Please, keep in mind that I am obviously NOT AN ALSA DEVELOPER, so explain what you are talking about at all, and what exactly do you expect me to do, and give me precise instructions in how to do it, and what's the risk factor, and what exact info you need, etc. You are not talking to your colleague at work, nor to your pals at a hack meeting, I am just a guy who'd like to use his headset with his laptop, that's all.

That said, I guess I understood (the only thing I did!) you wanted to see what alsa-info.txt looks like with dell-headset-multi enabled, and headset plugged-in, so there you are, see attachment.
It seems to me that this option is getting me somewhere, but not quite there. It adds the ability to choose a headset as a capture source, but the mic remains deaf. Could it be that Alsa is not yet having full support for the ALC233 codec?

And once again: English, please!

  [SATELLITE C50-B, Realtek ALC233, Mic, Internal] No autoswitch

Status in alsa-driver package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  It is a Toshiba Satellite C50-B-15N to be precise. It has a single combo plug, and Ubuntu fails to switch to the headset microphone when a combo jack is plugged in.
  Sometimes even the output fails switching to phones, but it only happens very seldom, and after a reboot it works fine again. But the mic just never ever switches, only the laptop's built-in one is always working.

  I am using an up to date Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet with Unity and
  standard audio set-up. I haven't (yet) change anything audio-related.
  I have started this bug with apport, so I believe most of these
  details are reported there.

  Probably a different bug, but it could be related: The built-in mic is
  stereo, but only its left side is actually working, as a normal
  single-channel mic. The right side is deaf.

  Let me know if you need other info.
