Solus Linux 4.1 KDE Audio Device Disappears After Rebooting

Case: After logging in, the sound control icon is displayed as muted. Clicking on it to display Audio Volume settings and sliders, appears blank – no settings and sliders. Audio Volume Settings window -> Audio tab has all settings present but grayed out, no audio device detected.


  1. Issue encountered in Solus 4.1, 4.2, 4.3 (all KDE).
