Sound output. Why don't sound auto shift from speaker to headset?

When I connect my headset the sound don't automatic shift to the headset and vica versa. I have to go to Sound Preferences to shift...

Thanks, Laffen.

Yep, It’s sometime an issue with Linux I have found. I always install indicator-sound-switcher. This is a little applet that sits in your system tray and allows you to very quickly switch inputs and outputs. It is still a manual requirement to switch them. but literally takes a second and so is a lot faster than having to go into sound settings.

You can install it with by adding the ppa

with these commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yktooo/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install indicator-sound-switcher

This is a video of it in action:
