Fresh install, no sound, card not detected

Hey Guys,

I just installed EndeavourOS on my Acer Swift 3 and I don’t have sound.

this is what I cat after

inxi -A
  Device-1: Intel Sunrise Point-LP HD Audio driver: snd_soc_skl
  API: ALSA v: k6.9.2-arch1-1 status: kernel-api
  Server-1: PipeWire v: 1.0.7 status: active

I alreade tryed to install sof-firmare and pipewire

Thanks in advance for helping

What does aplay -l show

It shows:

[toby@toby-swiftsf31552 ~]$ aplay -l
aplay: device_list:279: keine Soundkarten gefunden ...

What in English means: no soundcard found

Tip: use


in front of a command to make it output English.

And welcome!

I don’t know if this will work but you could try it. Under /etc/modprobe.d/inteldsp.conf


options snd-intel-dspcfg dsp_driver=1

After you would have to reboot and see if it works.


doesn’t exists in this folder on my system :confused:

You have to create it with

sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/inteldsp.conf


options snd-intel-dspcfg dsp_driver=1

Then press Ctrl + o and then enter to save
Then Ctrl + x to exit nano

Then reboot.

Edit: You could also use kate to create this file in the folder and save.

Thank you very much, it worked this way !

If you enter aplay -l in the terminal it should list the sound card now!

Edit: Just wanted you to check it so you can see what it’s supposed to show for the sound cards. Afterwards please mark the post that provided you with the solution.
