Anyone here using Manjaro on a T440p? I need some help with sound quality. Basically it is pretty bad with clipping and distorted output specially with the bass at any volume passing 60%. Definitely not hardware as the sound is ok in Windows 10

I have had trouble running Manjaro on my t440p because I have the nvidia chip so I have never gotten it to work properly. That’s probably my bad but for Optimus laptops the best distro I have used is mint followed by PopOS

yeah, I have been using Mint for years, this is the first time I try Manjaro

Do you have pulse audio or pipewire running?

thanks for taking the time to respond. I have pulse audio for sure but I heard that Manjaro also uses pipewire. Is there any way I can check?

I am sure there is but I don't know it. I would check the manjaro forums or post in a manjaro or linux facebook group specifically
