Lately Ive been struggling to get my computer to produce any audio. And now on top of the inability to do so, I cannot even watch youtube videos. I pause and unpause just for it to stay still as if it were paused. Manjaro linux worked perfectly for me until recently, but I couldn’t install it because my touchpad, bluetooth, and wifi were not working, so I went with endeavour OS. This is now seeming to be a mistake.
I assume you ask for help, and not just venting your frustration from switching from one non working system to the other.
You could start by providing more info:
What computer do you have? Output of command inxi -F
Can you play videos on other websites? Can you play audio / video using mp3 player / video player? How did you install Endeavour?
This is like a basic stuff which will help other members of community to assist you.
Can you share the output of
inxi -xxA? From the looks of it, it’s likely that your sound server (either pipewire or pulseaudio) isn’t working properly. But you should also test things out on another browser just to be sure that the problem isn’t with your browser.
It might also help if you type this into a terminal to see what pipewire services are or are not running:
ps axu | grep 'pipe\|wire'
Output of inxi -F:

I tried chess.com audio and that didnt work either.
I tried using brave browser rather than chrome, and that had no effect.

You have two sound servers running at the same time.
Disable one of them and test your audio again.
sudo systemctl disable pulseaudio
Failed to disable unit: Unit file pulseaudio.service does not exist.
Failed to disable unit: Unit file pipewire.service does not exist.
cant even disable either of them
Try it with the
systemctl --user disable pulseaudio
Failed to connect to bus: No medium found
systemctl --user status pulseaudio?
Also you can check:
systemctl --user status pipewire-pulse.service
But my friend, you are on Kernel 5.15. Quick Googling shows similar issues with Intel TigerLake and 5.x Kernel series. Support was being added, but some issues were solved as far as in 6.0.5
Because your processor is quite new and if you will not be able to fix it with software changes, your best bet would be just to install latest Endevour with latest kernel, and then exclude kernel package from upgrading, if you want to sleep more calm
If it were me i wouldn’t be using Chrome.
how do i install new kernel
Unit pipewire-pulse.service could not be found.
its the same for brave browser and firefox
To get new Kernal, you need to upgrade your system:
i literally run this command every day and it never fixed it…
I have the same hardware on one of my machines
I would recommend you to try issuing this command to reinstall kernel, firmware and pipewire stuff first. There are issues with
wireplumber so I also recommend
yay -S linux linux-headers sof-firmware pipewire pipewire-pulse pipewire-media-session
Then reboot and make sure you are booting in the correct kernel (current version of arch kernel is
F6 and select the first sof card from the list. Now make sure the auto-mute mode is disabled
Also make sure you are not running two sound servers at the same time, and that you have
realtime-privileges packages installed so pipewire can work with realtime priority.
