Description Alberto Ruiz 2016-07-29 08:37:53 UTC
Description of problem:
My ThinkPad T460s has stopped routing audio through the docking station in F24

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Dock the laptop
2. Play a sound

Actual results:
Sound is outed through the laptop speakers instead of the dock. PulseAudio won't show that there are now two outputs (docks' minijack and the speakers as it did in F23)

Expected results:
Audio output to be routed through the dock, at least in the case that there's something plugged in the minijack.

Just an idea. Did you try to use the F23 kernel with F24 ?

Comment 2 Alberto Ruiz 2016-07-29 09:17:28 UTC
I think the problem was in the dock somehow, I unplugged the minijack from the dock and plugged it again and now everything is fine. Sorry guys.

I have a T460p, and the dock jack still does not work for me. However, It looks like my behavior is a little bit different than yours. You said that when you have it docked and something plugged into the dock minijack, you still get audio through your laptop speakers. If I have my laptop docked and nothing plugged into the dock's audio jack, I get sound through my built-in laptop speakers. If I plug some speakers into the into the dock's audio jack, I get no sound at all. Unplugging and re-plugging does not help at all.

Comment 4 Alberto Ruiz 2016-07-29 15:51:00 UTC
I think in my case it was some weird problem with the dock not detecting the jack that was in. Since I replugged the jack everything is fine now.
