Main sound device disappears in "jack" plug

sm flag

I have a laptop with "jack" audio output. When I plug my headphones in, I expect to have two sound device - main laptop speaker and headphones, any of which I can select in my settings. But the "speaker" sound device disappears. Can I have two devices?

Ubuntu version is 22.04.

What happens when you unplug the headphones? It would also be a good idea to add the version of Ubuntu to the question with the edit command.

I have single speaker device again. To be precise, "Speaker - Family 17h HD Audio controller".

That may be how your hardware works, it turns off one when you plug in the other. Some do work that way. Still waiting for the version of Ubuntu.

I guess no, because Windows on the same laptop accepts both devices and switches with software between ones. (I updated the version in the question, it is 22.04)

You should also add what you said about it works in Windows. Any help you get is as good as the info provided.

Try pulseaudio volume control `sudo apt install pavucontrol`

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
