USB-C headphones not working despite being listed as audio device

I have a laptop with a USB-C port to which I connected my USB-C earphones (earbuds from Google, not the Bluetooth ones). The device is correctly listed in the audio output channels, but selecting them doesn’t affect the audio system, which continues to output from the laptop speakers.

Audio Settings

As you can see from the screenshot above, I selected the device, but when I press “Test Speakers” the audio keeps coming from the Laptop Speakers.

I tried pavucontrol and the USB-C device is not listed there. See screenshot below


If I use the command line utility speaker-test, I am able to force the audio through the earphones. Specifically this command works perfectly.

speaker-test -D plughw:earbuds -c 2

Any suggestion on how to route the system audio through the earphones?

System data:
– Ubuntu 18.10
– Laptop: Huawei Matebook X Pro
– Earphones: Google Earbuds (HW ID 18d1:5033)

Web3 not being detected – google chrome extension

I am working on a google chrome extension that operates when a user opens up a new tab. Upon opening a new tab, my dapp should connect to the user’s web3 provider. However, no web3 is being detected.

Everything works fine if deployed as a simple webpage.

I am just running into said issue when I try to operate my dapp as a chrome extension, with it beginning to run when opening a new tab.

Here is truffle-react‘s setup which I did not edit for retrieving web3:

let getWeb3 = new Promise(function(resolve, reject) {
// Wait for loading completion to avoid race conditions with web3 
injection timing.
window.addEventListener('load', function() {
var results
var web3 = window.web3

// Checking if Web3 has been injected by the browser (Mist/MetaMask)
if (typeof web3 !== 'undefined') {
  // Use Mist/MetaMask's provider.
  web3 = new Web3(web3.currentProvider)

  results = {
    web3: web3

  console.log('Injected web3 detected.');

} else {
  // Fallback to localhost if no web3 injection. We've configured this to
  // use the development console's port by default.
  var provider = new Web3.providers.HttpProvider('')

  web3 = new Web3(provider)

  results = {
    web3: web3

  console.log('No web3 instance injected, using Local web3.');


Does Charlie in “The Perks Of Being A Wallflower” have a mild form of autism?

In Stephen Chbosky’s “The Perks Of Being A Wallflower,” Charlie seems to have some social skill issues, and seems clueless to the norms of teenage interaction.

Is there any evidence, either from the book or from comments made by the author, that Charlie is afflicted with Asperger’s or any other form of autism?

Question: Viewing my hotmail email in windows 10 while being used by another app?

I am currently trying to view my hotmail emails in the windows 10 mail platform. It’s not letting me view them and tells me I am already logged in. However, I can’t view my hotmail emails only the emails of the email address from the other app. This other app is my business email. I have to be able to view all emails both hotmail and the other app for work purposes. Does anyone know of a way I can view them both in the windows 10 email platform?

Am I supposed to be able to know which tags are being watched by another (arbitrary) user?

I’ve searched for this topic before posting, but couldn’t find anything because searching for “watched tags” basically only yields questions about how to manage one’s watched tags.

Recently I was searching for new questions to answer tagged with any of my watched tags by putting something like this in the search bar:

intags:mine is:question hasaccepted:no

And I noticed that changing intags:mine to intags:, for example like this, results in a filter that matches the watched tags of an arbitrary user given their ID (which is publicly available). From this filter it is obviously trivial to know which tags the user is watching.

Is this behavior intended? I don’t see the possibility to peek at watched tags anywhere on other users’ profiles.

Does being a cold killer make one a Sith? How does it fit into the Rule of Two?

A quote from The Book of Sith, page 66:

The Force is venom. If it is poured into many cups, it loses its potency until it becomes so diluted it is merely an irritant. Yet pour those cups back into a single vessel and you will have the power to stop a Krayt dragon’s heart.

This is the following scenario: I live in the Star Wars universe in the era of the Rule of Two. I am aware that I am a Force sensitive being, and I know about the existence of the Jedi. Yet my emotions drag me to what the Jedi and Sith call the Dark side. I learn to use powers to some extent. Without remorse I killed some of my enemies out of revenge.

Would this be possible and I am now a third Sith? And if so, what are the consequences for the master and his apprentice?
