[SOLVED]USB audio device

[SOLVED]The USB audio device (Unitek Y-247A) fails to load.   It works in Mint 19.3 Mate, Solus 4.1 Mate, Void Mate, and MX 19.2.  These are the 5 distro's installed on this Intel Nuc.   How can I load this  device?

One moment, I'll look into the oracle ball, how it could have failed, when you didn't even bother to put more info about the system and logs here ....

That's the only thing I can do according to your description... 8)

Can you send more details about your machine, aka UEFI/Legacy BIOS, which DE are you using and so on?

You are asking us for a h/w that we are not aware of, and the reason for not loading a USB audio device, which we are not aware of too.

@alium is correct.

If you are asking for help, you must provide detailed info.

Sorry about that guys. I'm using the Mate DE on an Intel NUC.

I tried sudo pacman -S qlxinfo, but  got:   error: target not found: qlxinfo                  same for xdpyinfo

There's a bunch of /var/logs, which ones would help the most?

xdpyinfo is xorg-xdpyinfo

I use either pkgfile(pacman -S pkgfile ; pkgfile -u) or pacman -F to find things such as that

We need relevant infos.

All need run under root or use sudo:

Code: [Select]
lspci -v

Use and put here links with logs.

Use you alsa or pulseaudio?

Without this relevant informations (need all 4 logs!!) we can't help you. 8) Thanks

I copied the 4 links you asked for to (I don't know how to get this to you)
In the lsusb, my audio adapter (Unitek Y-247A) is listed. As  far as I know, there are no drivers for this type device, so it should be working.
I installed pulseaudio and it now shows up with the sound icon, but still no sound.
 As I mentioned in my 1st comment,  the audio on 4 other distros is working fine.

The USB audio device (Unitek Y-247A) fails to load.
ok, seems, that device is initialized and installed correctly.

so install pavucontrol (gtk3) or pavucontrol-qt (qt5) and check, if pavucontrol find it.

seems, that you have another soundcard installed, by intel - snd_hda_intel driver

Thanks Alium, installing pavucontrol got me sound!

Intel NUC's don't have any sound devices, hence the need for the USB device.

I akso have a HD PRO Webcam C920 installed.

I marked my original comment as [SOLVED]

Thanks again to all!
