Sailfish/Gemini: External speaker still on when headphones plugged in

Pretty much as the title: the external speaker doesn't cut out automatically when the headphone socket is in use.

I'm using the Sailfish 2.1 community edition on an x27 Gemini.

happened before, maybe this will solve your problem...

OK, reading that, it seems that booting with the headphones plugged in should help... but not in my case. I've also tried various combinations of plugging/unplugging with playback running, or not. Also restarting the media application with headphones present or not. I've seen no change in behaviour from any of this.

Tuning pulseaudio works, altrough this might foward everything (ringtones for example) to your headphone jack.

$ pacmd list-sinks

Prints details of your audio setup. One that's your default is marked with a star:

* index: 1

On my Gemini PDA, headphones were inside "index 1 ---> ports ---> output-wired_headphone"

$ pacmd set-sink-port 1 output-wired_headphone

Changes to the headphone jack. This will reset after rebooting back to speakers, i tried adding that line to /etc/pulse/default.pa but it didn't work.

(EDIT: typo on last command)

Adding: alias fix='pacmd set-sink-port 0 output-wired_headphone' to ~/.bashrc helped me. After reboot run fix from cmd.
