Headset mic

Hello, I’m new to Linux as a whole and i fresh installed Garuda today (from windows), everything seemed to be going smoothly until i decided to use discord, I’ve noticed that my headsets mic (all 3 of them) keep switching on and off whenever i decide to put them as default in discord. I tried my mic on OBS and it’s doing the same thing.

I tried to use switch from pipe wire to pulse audio but the problem persists.
(PS : I reinstalled the OS and it’s still doing the same thing.)

thank you for your time.

Reboot, please.

Try X11 from login page.

We do not support discord, OBS or your hardware :wink:

hello, thank you for your response.

I’ve applied what you’ve said and it didn’t change a thing.
and I’m sorry for asking about an unsupported software. since the bug happens on both discord and OBS i assumed it would be the same on every app.

cheers.
