My system is not taking input from wired headphones as well a bluetooth headsets as a mic apart from my default inbuilt mics in my laptop

Digital Mic selected

My earphones mic selected

Tried every possible thing on internet since last night

here's a screenshot of my alsamixer setting

To get bluetooth headset mic i think you need pipewire
I also had the same problem
Just use the commands in the terminal step by step

sudo apt install pipewire
sudo apt install pipewire-audio-client-libraries
systemctl — user daemon-reload
systemctl — user — now disable pulseaudio.service pulseaudio.socket
systemctl — user — now enable pipewire pipewire-pulse
systemctl — user mask pulseaudio
systemctl — user — now enable pipewire-media-session.service

then reboot and see if the bluetooth mic shows up

and now my night light is messed up

try this

isn't it a bug of Ubuntu/Zorin which should be fixed ?

Unfortunately, no. Hardware Support is covered by the Linux kernel and firmware. You can search the internet for the device's model number and supported Linux kernel version (i.e. " [headset model] support Linux kernel version").

You are most likely not the only one with the issue. It may require a newer kernel for the appropriate driver support. This search will give you the kernel version you will need.

You could also try using the latest release of pipewire and wireplumber from the github repo here (in case the apt version is not yet updated to the latest). This is one of two pieces of software that offers the HSP drivers for audio devices.

The combination of newer kernel and latest pipewire may be the solution.

okaaay I will manage my life with laptop sound :slightly_smiling_face:
