I have had the bug report suggestions setup this way for along time as sound is always routed to TV and I don’t want it to switch to tinny laptop speakers.
sudo -H gedit /etc/pulse/default.pa and find the lines:
load-module module-switch-on-port-available load-module module-switch-on-connect
Change them to:
#load-module module-switch-on-port-available #load-module module-switch-on-connect
Save the file and use:
Note 1: It’s been reported that plain
sudo now performs like
sudo -H in 19.04 but caution dictates using later method.
Note 2: Earlier versions of Ubuntu will only have the first configuration line.
