I just installed Garuda on my laptop and for some reason no audio plays and I cannot adjust the volume of the sound at all. Is there a fix for this?

Edit : I have not faced this issue in the KDE edition of Garuda. It only seems to happen in the GNOME edition.

First thing, fully update your system. There have been many updates since

Secondly, you have multiple sound outputs. I'd suggest installing and using pavucontrol to get full easy access to your device configuration, see which device is set as the default, etc.

Hey thanks for replying. I just installed the kde version and everything worked fine.
