Audio:Welcome to the forums
not always the easiest to get working,
please run in a terminal inxi -A and paste back the result
you may have to install inxi from the repository, usually sudo apt-get install inxi
I disabled pipewire with sudo systemctl disable --global pipewireCan't run all sound servers at once. Choose one for your distro and disable the others.
For example, I know antiX uses ALSA, Slackware uses PipeWire now, and I think the 'buntus (of which POP is one) all use PulseAudio. But I could be incorrect. Start with PulseAudio
I have tested other distros like fedora and manjaro on this same machine and I get the same issues so I think it is a kernel level issue.We have seen many problems with Pop on this forum, Most people think it's a general distribution based on Ubuntu, But it's not, it is specially constructed to run on System 76's own hardware, as I have said many times, "if it works out of the box, then great, and if it doesn't , it's a pigs rear end to get it working correctly"
