Audio output source changes


Not sure if I should be posting this here or the arch board (I dont think there is a manjaro board but arch is close enough) but I'm still learning the in and outs of all this and this board has been really helpful with ambiguous problems.

The Laptop:
Hardware: Lenovo Thinkpad W530
OS: Manjaro 0.8.12 Ascella
Kernel: x86_64 Linux 3.19.3-1-MANJARO
Shell: bash 4.3.33
Resolution: 1600x900
DE: XFCE4
WM: Xfwm4
WM Theme: Menda
GTK Theme: Xfce-dusk [GTK2], Not Found [GTK3]
Icon Theme: Menda-Square
Font: Cantarell 11
CPU: Intel Core i7-3630QM CPU @ 3.4GHz
GPU: Quadro K1000M
RAM: 1112MB / 15871MB

Problem: Audio will randomly stop, only after waking up or logging in. It never happens during playback. It seems once I get it working again it doesn't happen.

Oddly enough, I cannot recreate the problem it's pretty inconsistent but its happening fairly regularly

What happened when it started: I was trying to connect headphones by bluetooth. Beats headphones (if this is relevent). It connected right up, but it took a little bit of troubleshooting before I realized I had to manually switch the output source to be the headphones. The problem started shortly after this so I am guessing this is what started it.

Troubleshooting: Here is what I am noticing, simply plugging an audio cable in and then out resets playback to the speakers. I took at look at the 'audio mixer' and saw this, whe nthe headphones are plugged in, speakers switch to "muted", masters level drops slightly, and 'mic boost' turns up a bit. Unplugging them unmutes the speakers, puts master back to maximum, and turns mic boost down.


I haven't seen the audio mixer while the problem is still happening because It's become a kneejerk reaction to just quickly stick the headphones jack in to fix it.

I've seen this thread:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...put%27-798325/
and this following article:
http://ubuntugeek.com/forum/index.php?topic=21.0

These seem more applicable to ubuntu and the problem itself seems different.



Any thoughts?

Hi
Sorry, I didn't understand the problem that you're having.

...sounds like a contradiction - if <something bad> never happens during playback then things are great, no?

Sorry. No sound will come through the speakers. The only thing that corrects this is plugging in and unplugging headphones. What I meant by it doesn't happen during playback is, sound wont just stop during play back. It only happens from the time I log in. Once I band-aid it with the headphones, the problem doesn't reoccur until a reboot or sleep. Sorry for the confusion.
