I know someone is going to say OFF TOPIC! But I think
this a Kubuntu setting problem so here I am.
My Thinkpad laptop does produce sound out of the socket
when I e.g. play a Youtube clip using my ear phones, so
the sound system does work. But both Amarok and Audacity
produce no sound at all.
Is there a system setting for this?
ThinkPad x131e AMD Kub 18.04.4, inxi -A as described and knopp Adriane
speech /does/ sample via headset on startup&shutdown.
Kub notification area has a sound icon which gives access to playback
devices settings (as well as an Applications tab). That hamburger shows
the headphones as a port, but it shows 'speakers unavailable' which
corresponds to the Adriane experience. The default doesn't recognize
the little laptop speaker.
So, I would say that my ThinkPad 'outofthebox' does not have sufficient
speaker configuration on Kub 18, but it does satisfactory w/ headset.
It doesn't have Audacity or Amarok by default. I installed those and
Amarok plays its theme song via the headset.
