I was wondering if anyone here has had any success getting working a microphone attached to 3.5mm jack headphones.
My Qubes installation is on a Macbook Pro 2012 and the headphones I’m trying to get to work are Apple’s Earpods. They do work and are recognized as an output device when connected to the headphones jack (there’s no microphone jack) however in qui-devices, only the internal microphone is detected. Same in whatever else audio control utility is available in dom0. Additionaly, running
pacmd list-sources with and without the headphones connected yields no difference in the command’s output. The audio codec is Cirrus Logic CS4206, as evident from /proc/asound/card0/codec#0 file, while the audio card is HDA Intel PCH.
From the looks of it, this looks like a driver/kernel - hardware compatibility issue unfortunately, but I’d like to know if anyone here had a similar issue or knows a workaround to get the microphone working. Let me know what type of log output you want me to include in case you want to help.
