What commands did you find?

It is important to explain what you have already tried so far. It can be frustrating to offer a suggestion and hear back something like "I already tried that."


sudo pacman -S alsamixer
sudo pacman pipemixer

So basically you haven't tried anything yet, since neither of those commands will even do anything. Neither one of those is even the name of a package, and your second command you didn't even specify an argument for pacman.

Does the sound work out of the speakers? That would be a helpful bit of information to know.

First, reboot your device and test again.

Next, try unmuting the sound card. Copy and paste the input and output of the commands into the thread if it doesn't work.

amixer sset Master unmute
amixer sset Headphone unmute

If that doesn't work, try this:

sudo alsactl restore

There probably will not be any output, if there is for some reason paste it in the thread.

Try some of the troubleshooting advice noted here: Chrome OS devices - ArchWiki

Describe your efforts in the thread so if you get stuck someone can take a look and try to help.

Try installing the LTS kernel.

First take a fresh update:


Then install the kernel and headers:

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

Reboot, the in the grub menu choose advanced boot options and pick the LTS kernel.


its doesn't work

Preparing setup..

[sudo] password for linux:

Installing packages..

there is nothing to do

Enabling services..

Press enter to return to setup assistant.

and its cant detect my headphone

This is not enough information. I suggested three commands to try and asked you to put output into the thread--where is it?

Why am I putting in more effort than you are? My headphones work fine. :thinking:

You haven't tried LTS yet, the output you showed only says it is installed. You have to reboot the device choose the LTS kernel on the grub menu.

If you are booted into Garuda and haven't selected the LTS kernel yet, you have gone too far.

Go back through the rest of the suggestions and add more information to the thread. The LTS kernel was actually the last suggestion on the list; try the other stuff too. You also never answered this question:


wait first i will reinstall my chromebook and try it agian but i doesn't now the partition and i have 58gb

try it all
but doesn't work. the problem is my chromebook cant detect my headphon jack 3.5mm


i use a chromebook with a system garuda kde Dr460nized. (hp chromebook 14a-0142nd) and both of my speaker of my chromebook work, but my headphone jack doesn't be detected. with pipeware. i have try much ways but they are all useless

its work on a bluethooth speaker, but i dont have a normal speaker. i have try the lts kernel but it doesn't work. is it the problem of my chromebook or my system

Either a hardware issue or it might be related to the JamesDSP issue :man_shrugging:

Have you also tried changing from PipeWire support to PulseAudio support in the System Components of Garuda Assistant?

yes i tried but both cant detect my headphone jack

and i cant find my output device
