Ubuntu – Output Device on GNOME settings shows Speakers and Headphone separately


enter image description here
Hello All,

On 18.04.4, there was only one output device. And when I inserted a headset, the sound was playing on headset automatically.

On 20.04 I am having to select output device as headphone when connecting earphone or headset.

Any suggestions?

  • I am not 100% what you mean.but it sounds as if your headset is not the default device....besides. ..are you using a usb-headset or just plug into the Jack of the laptop?

    ....you could try installing pavucontrol and take a look at your devices:

    sudo apt install pavucontrol
