    Cannot get TB16 dock headphone jack to work in Fedora

    The headphone jack on the TB16 works fine in Win 10, but not in Fedora.

    Had this problem in the final throes of F28 as well. (It worked initially then at some point, stopped)

    Any ideas?

    Re: Cannot get TB16 dock headphone jack to work in Fedora

    Tried pavucontrol. There's no indication of my plugging in the headphones into the TB16, so nothing to play with.

    Just like what the native Fedora Settings | Sound shows me:

    1) If I plug in the headphones to the laptop, the headphones appear in the settings.
    2) If I plug in the headphones into the TB16 dock - nothing happens.

    So it appears that Fedora is not being informed of the insertion of the headphone jack which sounds like a driver issue to me, and not anything a tool running in Fedora can help with.

    Do any BIOS options change when you are on the dock ?

    Look at amixer (man amixer)
    Somewhere on this forum I posted a shell script
    amixer.sh, that ran amixer, enabling Headphone volume to 100 percent.
    Also, check that lineout is analog vis settings.

    What do you mean - if I boot laptop into BIOS with the dock connected, and then reboot without the dock, do I see something different? Not that I know of.

    Appreciate the thoughts...

    I don't believe I have a "muted" audio - or that any audio settings (levels, etc.) can be the culprit. There is absolutely NO recognition by Fedora that the headphones are plugged in (When going via TB16). The socket on the laptop works properly and I can see "Headphones - Built-in Audio" activity in Settings | Sound when inserting and removing plug.

    Unless and until Fedora "sees" the headphones via TB16, it's not going to send any audio to it.

    I'll look at the amixer...

    For completeness, in pavucontrol

    Under Output Devices | Built-in Audio Analog Stereo | Port
    the entry "Headphones" stays as "unplugged" regardless of what I do with the headphone jack on the TB16

    As I expected, amixer had no effect.

    Any ideas as to why the insertion of the headphones goes totally unnoticed in Fedora?
