I’m running Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS/Windows 10 after a recent reinstall. Everything was clicking until I recently launched Audacity and a message popped up:
Audacity may have better audio device support if granted permission to access the ALSA audio system.
If you experience audio problems, you may wish to grant this access by using the Software Centre or the Snap Store to add the ‘alsa’ permission to Audacity. It is safe to continue without doing so.
You can also grant this permission by running the following command in a Terminal window:
sudo snap connect audacity:alsa
If you choose to continue and later wish to change your mind, you can remove the file /home/[user]/snap/audacity/common/Always use PulseAudio.
I ran the command and found that my headphones no longer worked. I’ve checked all the settings and the headphones work on Windows, so this clearly is due to running the command.
I’ve tried removing the file mentioned above to no effect. The following might be useful, though not to me:
