Description Yajo 2020-09-29 08:23:08 UTC
Description of problem:
I have one USB headset unit. In particular: Plantronics C3220

When I plug in the USB, the audio input and output channels are not available in GNOME.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: See below (I hate this question).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open GNOME session.
2. Choose some audio in/out devices.
3. Open some sound app so you can see the effect.
4. Plug in the headset.
5. Go to gnome settings and try to use it. No way, headset in/out channels are missing.
6. Press Alt+F2 and execute `pulseaudio -k`.
7. GNOME session restarts (I use because of nvidia graphics card).
8. Now all in/out sound channels are available.

Actual results: See above.

Expected results: In step 5 you should be able to use the headset right away.

Additional info:
I use F32 Silverblue.

I believe this is caused by a race between pulseaudio and PipeWire, it should be fixed with this update:
