    by default, pulseaudio only outputs to one output device at a time. i believe the reason for this is to keep the lag (time delay) of audio to a minimum for games. you should learn how to change settings on pulseaudio so you can always do it yourself. if you need help learning, come bask and ask.

    Re: Speaker Out , doesn't work

    You haven't told us what release (or possibly flavor) you are using of Ubuntu.

    After loading `pavucontrol` (Pulse Audio Volume Control) which is listed in my menu under "Sound & Video" (Lubuntu 19.10), the "Output Devices" lets me control where sound goes out using the drop-down list. You haven't told us what release you are running, but have you looked in `pavucontrol` to see if you can control it there?

    It could also be that that output has been muted, if so that's (`pavucontrol`) the best place in my opinion to unmute or fix sound issues (for me it's usually after I drop something on the keyboard, or accidently miss & hit a bunch of unknown keys that the system understood as shortcuts).
