USB headphones Not Detected

Tittle pretty much says it all
I’m running Endeavour OS on the Linux Zen kernel, KDE window manager,


there’s my Pulse audio config,
Razer kraken is the headset, and it has been detected before… As you can see I have the system set to automatically switch to it when I plug it in.

99% of the time I plug it in ,and it’s not detected though. Even if I go to devices, and try to switch manually it just isn’t listed there.

  1. open terminal
  2. type this: journalctl -f
  3. plug the usb headphone of and on.
  4. watch the journal while that

ok here we go
Started with them plugged i
unplugged, then re-plugged while command was running

[james@James-EOS ~]$ journalctl -f

Hello @Lancaban
I don’t know if this would help but there are some packages in the AUR called openrazer. There is a github page you can read some stuff. Not sure if it helps.

openrazer-meta
openrazer-driver-dkms
openrazer-daemon

Still having this issue, still no progress, anyone with any ideas please let me know

Did you add the following to /etc/pulse/default.pa

load-module module-switch-on-connect
1 Like

I thought I had accomplished this by using the checkbox in the audio settings GUI, but I’m not seeing it in the file. I’ll add it manually and see if that helps

Sadly no luck
I still have to plug & unplug several times to get it to work :frowning:
I hear the headphones like “click” when they get plugged in, but they aren’t showing up in the list of audio devices at all. I have tried them in a different system to ensure it’s not a loose wire or something in the headphones themselves, and they work flawlessly.

I’m completely stumped

No particular expertise here - but have you varied which USB port you plug it into? I’ve been having fun with KVM switching, and which type of USB port seems to matter a LOT…

Yes I have tried several ports :frowning:
Pass-through on my keyboard, Front port on Case, and direct on the back of the Motherboard.
