I've installed Fedora 26. The integrated microphone works fine. When I connect my headphone, I can hear the playback in the headphone, but its microphone is not picked up.

I find no options in sound settings to help with this problem.

FYI, the laptop is an Asus N550.

Try using hdajackretask from alsa-tools package. Here's a walk-through:

Thanks, I'm trying to use hdajackretask tool, by when I want to apply the changes, it fails with "Busy" message. I made sure that pulseaudio daemon is not running, but the device is still busy. Any helps on this?
