No sound from bluetooth speakers but sound from headphones

Recently sound is not coming from my laptop speakers but when I put headphones then sound is working for headphones. I don't know what is the problem , I tried replacing pulseaudio with pipe wire support as told by others in telegram but nothing changed. Please help me

As text. Even if you think it's unnecessary.
That way we will know where to start.

This problem seems to crop up regularly on kernel updates. Quite often testing alternate kernels will help.

I'd start with the following in this order:

linux-lts
linux-hardened
linux-mainline
linux-next-git
linux

Be sure you have the corresponding headers installed for each kernel as well.

With Garuda you can have multiple kernels installed at once. It is best to always keep at least 2 kernels installed at all times.

After changing kernel should I restart the system or the change are applied automatically

You didn't read "Reporting bugs" :slight_smile:

If you include terminal outputs in your post please use the proper output format in your post. Using "~" 3 times above and "~" 3 times below the text block will provide a readable, raw look.

@SGS Thanks

I think you need to research things more fully in the future.

Installing any new kernel or driver will never automatically take effect. You must reboot first. At the grub boot menu you must switch kernels at the advanced grub submenu.

This doesn't look right^^^

Please post:

rfkill list all
lsmod | sort
systemctl status bt.service

Also be sure to put 3 ~~~ before and after any terminal outputs you post for proper code formatting.

You are welcome.

Your bluetooth is soft blocked.

Search online for how to remove a soft block.

Is there any difference after unblocking?

Does it stay unblocked after rebooting?

Please post:

systemctl status bluetooth.service

No idea what happened but in the morning sound is working from speakers. Thanks all for ur help

Your bluetooth will not work if it is soft blocked, so I'm sure removing the soft block helped.

This is because restart is needed to apply changes, which you did this morning.
