Output sound only working with the above shown configurations while input sound (microphone) doesn't work at all with any of the available input devices.
microphone progress bar just flashing for seconds after selection of the above shown configuration but no sounds captured after.
Is there any other particular options like snd-hda-intel related to microphone? or it should be enough to get audio to fully work?
alsamixerF6 is best as it shows All ypur sound channels.
I would have a play with [S/PDIF]. try unmuting that by selecting and then hit M
Also have a play with [Auto-Mute Mode]: try toggling that to "Disabled" and see effect.
If in doubt unmute all sound channels showing as [MM] and increase volume above zero.
Fixing sound issues can be hit-and-miss. You may just stumble on a solution at random by trying different alsamixer settings.
@Aravisian I set levels to maximum, below are the reflection in alsamixer when switching between "Microphone - Built-in Audio" and "Internal Microphone - Built-in Audio" input devices. not really sure what's the difference between both but none is capturing voice.
Do you have pavucontrol installed? If not, Install:
sudo apt install pavucontrol
and Launch It:
You can also launch it with the same command from alt+F2 or from the app menu (It is called PulseAudio Volume Controller).
There are three tabs for you to look at. First, of course, is Input Devices
Can you check if your Microphone is plugged in and that it shows in the list?
The other two are Output Devices and Configuration and in these, you only need to ensure that the Correct Devices are selected. For example, if you have a Plg n' Play speaker connected, but Output is set to HDMI through your Monitor, it may be trying to tie your Input from the Monitor Microphone. So ensure everything in these two tabs are set correctly.
That is a lot of scrolling. Most of the commands produce a null result. There was a list of packages to be installed... One was an alternative package manager, another was an alternative UI for the terminal...
But some did deal with module handling. It is up to you if you want to try it, but I wouldn't sweat it:
The user noted that the "Dummy" class never changed. He did get things working by other means.
I read through large swaths of that output, but could not find anything that pointed toward configuration files specific to MacBook. You could be right - I know that there are a couple of such that can throw users for a loop on Video Graphics using Macbook... But I couldn't find them referenced.
Out of interest, if you plug a microphone into the jack (you mentioned above) does that work?
EDIT: I have just done a websearch using "Cirrus Logic CS4206 no mic Ubuntu 20.04"
which has link to:
I don't know if that is any help to you.
EDIT2: Although it is on the Sound Output Side. Can you try changing Zorin>Settings>Sound>Output>Output Configuration
from "Analogue Surround 4" to "Analogue Stereo Duplex" if that is an option from the dropdown list.
Then revisit alsamixer
That idea came from:
There is another answer in that link with a against it which may be worth a look.
