The problem seems unique to this system and only with TDE.
I have tried fiddling with the various arts configurations in TCC.
Sound issues do not exist on this specific system with other desktop
Sound issues do not exist in other systems with TDE.
Comparing $TDEHOME config files with the functional systems has not found
Any ideas how to fix this issue?
Shot in the dark, but do you have pulseaudio installed along with alsa? It's
fine to do, there is a pulseaudio-alsa plugin, and many of the new Skype/Teams
type apps/webapps require pulseaudio instead of alsa (nobody ever wrote
drivers for those apps for alsa)
However, there are additional configurations to make pulse and alsa play
nicely. See wiki.archlinux.org
pulse audio page for details.
