2016-03-11 18:08:33 -0500 answered a question sound stopped working on F23

I am not sure if your problem is the same as mine, but here is what I have found so far.

The sound card makes a popping noise on boot because it is using the I2S mode under the newer kernel. In my case it then defaults to using the HDMI output for the sound instead of the broadwell-rt286. Currently if I open settings and select the sound card I get sound. It does not stick after a reboot though so I am researching a way to make it select the correct sound card at boot.

Also, when I plug in my headphones I get what sounds like a car horn sound in them. When I then remove them the computer speakers sound like rushing traffice (no horn).

Edit I found the following advice:

  • Open a new terminal window and start
  • alsamixer. Press F6 and select the broadwell-rt286 device
  • Press F3 (playback) and set the following settings:

    Master: 100 (all the way up, arrow keys)
    Headphones: 00 (press m to flip between mute and on, 00 means on)
    Speaker: 00
    Front DAC: 00
    Front REC: mm
    ADC 0 Mux: Dmic (arrow keys)
    ADC 1 Mux: Dmic
    AMIC: 100
    DAC0: 100
    HPO L: 00
    HPO Mux: front
    HPO R: 00
    Media0: 100
    Media1: 100
    RECMIX Beep: 00
    RECMIX line1: 00
    RECMIX mic1: 00
    SPK Mux: front
    SPO: 00
    

This resolved all the issues for me.

You can use gnome-tweak to add the applications menu.

You can also add some other fantastic extensions that help such as:

Taskbar - https://extensions.gnome.org/extensio...

mmod - https://extensions.gnome.org/extensio...

I used gpg2 to import the keys and this worked for me.
