Laptop - Thinkpad T470

On Loki, when I connect my monitor via USB-C, I was able to select the monitor as a sound target.

In Juno, the monitor does not appear as a sound target. The sound options available are the laptop's internal speakers and headphones

The same issue occurs on HDMI as well.

Suggestions on how I can fix this?

  • i can confirm this with my HDMI monitor, maybe you want to take a look here

GDog was correct, installing pavucontol is the workaround to this issue for now, Hopefully the Elementary team fixes this in the future!

sudo apt install pavucontrol run pavucontrol In configuration, change the built in adio profile to digital stereo output


Thanks GDog!
