I have a USB headset (microphone and speakers) and when I plug it in it is recognised. If I then go into Sound settings I can choose the headset in "Output", "Input" and "Hardware".
The problem is that if I put the computer to sleep or reboot it, Sound Settings will still list the headset but it is no longer selected, rather than default "Built-in Audio Analogue Stereo" (for example) is selected.
This has happened on Ubuntu as well, just FYI.
Any ideas on how to persist this selection? I guess it is to do with USB being hot swappable?, so how do I tell the Linux sound system (alsa/pulse?) "always use this headset when it is plugged in"?
P.S Wasn't sure if this should go into the hardware forum... admin, please feel free to move it if necessary
