I am having problems with internal microphone on elementary OS 5.1 Hera(based on Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS). Linux is not detecting the internal microphone. If I plugin a headphone with microphone, it will be working fine. Also there is no problem with the internal speakers.

sudo pavucontrol


I have tried all the methods specified here.

Also I have tried editing /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf with options snd-hda-intel model=dell which didn't worked as well.

Following are the output for head -n 1 /proc/asound/card0/codec*:

==> /proc/asound/card0/codec#0 <==
    Codec: Realtek ALC3254

==> /proc/asound/card0/codec#2 <==
    Codec: Intel Kabylake HDMI

Here is my Alsa logs.

Do anyone have any ideas to solve this?

  • Yes, I have updated the kernel as well – Jithin Jiji Dec 16 '19 at 10:01
  • I can confirm the issue on Dell Inspiron 7590 with Ubuntu 18.04 – Кристиян Кацаров Feb 25 '20 at 13:18
