GoXLR not working

Hey Guys,

I'm new to Garuda and have an audio setup that I can't get running. My Question is is there a KDE image with Kernel 5.10?
The problem is if I want to downgrade I can't boot into Linux LTS Kernel and it just stops. And I don't really know which nvidia driver version I would need for it to run.

Hello. Welcome :slight_smile:

Post your terminal/konsole in- and output as text (no pictures) from:

inxi -Faz

Without it, you will not receive any help from the Garuda team or your topic is likely to be closed without notice.

You can use live ISO for this. Which audio setup?


You can try downloading the kde-barebones iso, which ships with linux-lts instead of linux-zen.
Also welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

I'm using the GoXLR Mini

You don't need to downgrade, just install linux-lts and linux-lts-headers in addition to the current kernel and use it.
I can see at least one user in the forum providing inxi with linux-lts and your same GPU and driver version.
Additionally, I think that you could use also the nvidia-lts package (which is also at 495.44), but I'd leave a confirmation to Nvidia users (I never had a Nvidia GPU).


I tried this as well using Garuda Settingsmanager to install Linux-LTS. But when I boot into it I only get Initialize Ramdisk...

If you're trying to use the GitHub scripts you need at least 5.11 kernel.
Have you tried using kernel 5.15 sans zen?

I did it like it is told in the GitHub but even after installation and rebooting it only said GoXLR Multichannel but I couldn't hear anything through my studio monitors nor my headset. Tried my XLR-Mic as well no input. I joined the discord and tried this:
curl -s https://cloud.6clones.net/s/R85rcwNx47gNPsC/download/alsa-goxlr.tar.gz | sudo tar -xzvC /usr/share/alsa/
But it doesn't show up after running it and rebooting. I can only see it in the settings as "off".
I don't know what you mean by Kernel 5.15 sans zen...is it just without zen?

linux & linux-headers

Yes, the none zen'd, latest arch kernel. It may be a zen conflict. The joy of using reverse engineered drivers, triple trouble.

Wish you'd Pipe-Down. Hater!!!!

Btw got this out using GitHub script with 5.15 Zen:

Output Devices
No PulseAudio daemon running, or not running as session daemon.

Please type a number to pick a default output device (0 to skip):

So just sudo pacman -S linux right?

MAXXX Hate! :slight_smile:
@Zentriks Have you manually run Pulse? What does alsamixer say?

@anon26187667 maybe in a year or two I won't hate Pipewire but for as long as you STILL need alsa, pulse and or jack it's not living up to the hype and it's just more mess on the mess pile. :wink:

yes, but no, you want to have linux-headers as well and select it on reboot, by going to advanced in grub and selecting the none-zen option.

Well, there's a hint for you, which is listed on the Github.

@anon92996653 have at it. :slight_smile:

What am I having at? Pizza? Cookies? I'd love to have at a coffee right now but it's bed time.

Coffee? Peasant!
If not tea, get in the river (that was the chant, wasn't it?!?)

I'm already dual-booting and my GoXLR Mini powered even when I shut my rig down. I don't see another hint...
When it comes to audio-settings I'm much of a noob especially in linux

Linux audio is a bit of a landmine and with things transitioning to a new but not 100% system (Pipewire) it can be harder to figure out where issues are stemming from.

One of my issues in general is when you are new to a distro you don't fully understand how they've set up certain things until you dig into the what why when where of it all. In some distributions this can mean your audio is 100% right from the first boot, others it might be a week of tinkering, reading and swearing.

I was actually reading something about that GoXLR interface not too long ago but don't remember what the hell it was about. However we'll help as best we can. Things might be mucky but I'm sure it's doable. I do audio in Linux fine.
