I konow this is off tpoic but whats the 4th titlebar button for?

I typed the "inxi-Fxxxza" command in the terminal but it's saying command not found

It's

inxi -Fxxxza

And don't post pictures for terminal output.
I thought this was written in the wiki page... :face_with_raised_eyebrow:
And use proper format for terminal output (use the post editor formatting buttons).

As no one has seen fit to make further replies on this thread I'll give you an inkling why that may be the case.

Your desktop computers bios is listed as 9 years old. So, I'm going to assume your hardware is at least 10 years old. Your ram is listed as 1.77 GB total with 1.2 GB in use (with only 13 minutes of uptime). Modern web browsers can consume 1.2 GB of RAM alone all by themselves.

So what I'm saying is that resolving your audio issues will likely still not give you a positive experience running Garuda. Garuda is intended for modern performance gaming machines with a minimum of 4 GB of RAM, but preferably 8 GB of RAM for decent responsiveness.

Your hardware is really too inadequate to have a decent experience running Garuda. If you really desire to run Garuda then I would highly recommend at least doubling your ram capacity.

For tips on setting up your audio consult the Archwiki regarding alsa/pulse audio:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PulseAudio

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Advanced_Linux_Sound_Architecture

Good luck with your issues.

(Edit)

Also please do not double post on the Garuda forum on the same issues. Cross posting is against the rules at almost every forum on the planet and I assume you are aware of this and simply disregarded the rules as you deem yourself above the rules.

You have a prior post on the same issue opened on the same day regarding your audio issues. I am now closing that thread and I will merge its contents with your original thread. Please do not repeatedly open threads on the same issue in the future on our forum.

Switch the kernel to linux-lts

sudo pacman -S linux-lts linux-lts-headers

Then reboot and in grub menu advanced options
Choose lts kernel to boot

Not all of our sound and hardware specialists read the thousands of messages per day in Telegram.
Likewise, future readers do not know what it is all about.

So the more details you give here, the sooner a solution is possible.

You should also try searching the WWW for your sound card and whether it is Linux compatible.

Maybe an older kernel will help?
