There are two places in pavucontrol where you will need to verify
Under the "Output Devices" tab, some of the outputs may have a "Port"
dropdown selector. Generally you will not need to adjust this. The one
that says "Headphones (unplugged)" is referring to your motherboard's
built-in sound card, and it is correctly detecting that there is nothing
