Ideapad 320 microphone not working on linux

2019-05-11, 9:11 AM

Hello all

 

I want to run linux (ubuntu) on the ideapad 320. I installed it and everything works fine except the microphone. Tried different solutions to get it work without a success. I installed Windows just to validate if it's driver issue and not a hardware issue, and on Windows it works nicely.

 

Has anyone experienced same issue? Did anyone get microphone on ideapad 320 to work on linux?

 

Best regards

Me too, and I'm sure there are many  many others. It is a good machine but exclusive suport to an operating system is bad business.

I'm thinking ACER with care.

Hi guys.

 

I had the same problem, but I fixed it.

 

1 - Install the Pulse Audio

sudo apt install pavucontrol 

 

2 - Open the Pulse Audio, go to Input Device Tab, click on Lock Channels Together and slide the Left Side to 50% and slide the Right Side to 0%.

 

For me it's worked on Linux Mint 19.3 (Cinnamon), Fedora 32 (Gnome), Manjaro 20 (KDE) and Kubuntu 20.04.

 

But I realize that when I open Google Chrome and enter on any voice record site the microphone works, but stop works a few seconds after start the record audio. 

 

After that I come back to the step 2.

 

For that I'm using only Firefox, but my microphone still working.

 

I hope help you and sorry for my english.
