Kubuntu 20.04 USB Audio Devices Not Found Fix

Here is what I needed to do to get my audio devices found by my Kubuntu 20.04 focal installation.

First install this patch, and see if things start working: https://launchpad.net/~kaihengfeng/+archive/ubuntu/fix-lp1869819

If not then follow the instructions:

sudo apt install alsa-tools-gui
Run hdajackretask
Parser hints > jack_detect = no
Apply now
Install boot override

If everything is destroyed and you get the following message when running pulseaudio: pavucontrol stuck at “Establishing connection to PulseAudio. Please wait…”

Then you might want to try:

pulseaudio --check ; pulseaudio -D
