I’ve got an 11th Gen motherboard, and I’m running Fedora Kinoite (aka Silverblue, but with KDE) (I’ve tried this on a pinned version of 35 I still have, and the latest 36).
My mic seems to be no longer working. I know it worked at some point after I got the laptop.
The reason I’m making this a Community post to start instead of a Support question is to ask the community a question:
If you have a known working microphone on any Linux, and you run
dmesg -w, and flick the hardware switch on and off, do you get messages about a USB device being disconnected?
This is how it works with my web cam (which I can see works), but I don’t get any
dmesg output when I toggle the mic. I’m thinking that’s indicating a hardware issue. But I just want a second opinion on what I should be seeing before I start down the hardware route.
