[Bug 1190482] Re: [Dell Vostro 2420] Internal speaker does not show up in "Sound settings"


Hello Christopher,
thanks for the comment, but I don't think it's BIOS related.

Verified again on 201202-10592 with 12.10 + update (3.5.0-45)
Volume can be controlled by hotkeys, sound could be played normally.
But the output device section still empty.

With further investigation, it might be caused by pluseaudio
an output device (Built-in Audio Analog Stereo) will appear with this command:
pactl load-module module-detect

please find attachments for "pacmd list-sinks" results before and after
this pactl command.

$ dpkg -l | grep pulseaudio

I will change the affected package, thanks!

  [Dell Vostro 2420] Internal speaker does not show up in "Sound

Status in “pulseaudio” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  CID: 201202-10592

  This is a SRU system which is running 12.10 (3.5.0-34-generic

  The internal speaker does not show up in "Sound settings"
  But I can still play sound through the internal speaker normally (like pressing the volume button)
  And if you connect a headset to it, there will be a "Headphones" option available in the "Play sound through" list
