Audio not working

– Please Write here your help request, –
I disassembled my laptop and I have reassembled it again to clean it from dust and to upgrade the ram.

After the reassembly everything is working just fine except the audio.

I am using lenovo g580 laptop. If anyone knows what is the wires that is connected to the audio maybe its the issue maybe not I really don’t know.
note: its not the first time I have disassembled the laptop while using linux.

  • Parrot version in use (if you are not aware of it, open terminal and type cat /etc/os-release | grep VERSION):

4.11

  • Kernel version (if you are not aware of it, open terminal and type uname -r):

5.10.0-8parrot1-amd64

Fortunately I can pair my wireless headphones but it disconnects regularly I don’t why this was happening before and after the disassembly. If anyone has any idea on what can I do for the Bluetooth headphones please be my guest.

Some solutions I have tried.

there are some tiny audio connectors to the motherboard, most likely you forgot to connect
them ( eventually also 2 connectors on each side )

I did twice and got the laptop to a computer shop and he told me I unplugged it and plugged it again and there is no any hardware issue. So now I am 100% sure that its not from the connection or from the the hardware any ideas where is the problem?

which DE environment do you have, plasma ?

when i installed parrot i was using mate but then installed gnome and removed mate from the system. currently gnome

sorry I never used gnome.
Did Mate have audio?
Also I suppose you have now gdm as desktop manager then?
Try:
sudo apt update

sudo apt install --reninstall pulseaudio

sudo apt install --reinstall pavucontrol

apt-get install --reinstall alsa-utils

Yes mate had an audio and when i switched to gnome it also had an audio.
I tried doing the reinstalls but only alsa-utils had a problem.

sudo apt install --reinstall pavucontrol

sorry yes, you do:

sudo apt update --fix-missing

sudo apt upgrade

or, if you’re still stuck you also you can try:

sudo parrot-upgrade
