Description

Good morning,

a new day a new challenge. So on my OI Apple iMac (baremetal) the audio devices are properly recognized but there is no audio output (this is something Apple specific I guess) that's why I use an external USB audio stick that always helps with those systems where audio is not working, tested on OI, Solaris etc always works nicely with some modifications which I think are existing now for a long time.

Pulseaudio seems to ony detect the first audiohd:0 device and ignores the other audio devices (aka usb_ac:0). These audio devices are also not shown in the mate sound preferences output devices so you have to manually "patch" (well change the links)

/dev/audio
/dev/audioctl

to the corresponding /dev/sound device.

Btw, for those interested, I use this external USB stick which works on OI/Solaris.

Can you check if it is there some outputs in $HOME/.xsession-errors related pulseaudio or mate-settings and post this?
Is mate-settings-daemon running fine or there are some core files written related this?
