Hi, I have some problems with the control of my sound, when I wanted to download a package I had to remove something that should not. Can you tell me how to make the sound reappear on my taskbar and not work at all. Could you tell me how to resolve it please.

Pulse and PipeWire are both running. Try having PipeWire running instead of Pulse. Go to Garuda Welcome -> Garuda Assistant -> System Components tab. Uncheck PulseAudio. Hit Apply. Reboot.

If doing that doesn't fix this issue, you might have the same issue as in this thread on top of all that: Update and no audio devices found (currently unresolved at the time of this post)

Looks like you'll need to install.

sudo pacman -S sof-firmware
