I don't get any sound on a monitor with built-in speakers. Sometimes, after plugging headphones to the computer and then unplugging them, the sound on the monitor starts working. Any help would be appreciated.

PS: If it is of any help, here is the outcome of alsa-info:

look for a way to set the hdmi as the default sound device, maybe use pavucontrol or paprefs to adjust your settings. HTH.

@steveebey73742 thanks for your suggestion; hdmi was shown as the only sound device, so the problem is probably in something else
