Well, Ubuntu is pretty much going great for me except for the sound. Sound plays using "Internal Audio Analog Stereo", and the quality of the music isn't as good as when I use Windows. The only other option to enable sound with is my HDMI connection which I don't want to use.

If anyone knows how I would be able to enable my normal digital audio, that would be great. I ran a command from the terminal and the device is found. I just can't figure out how to enable it.

Can you please edit your question and add more details to it? What command did you run, what audio device do you want to activate? –  Bruno Pereira Feb 13 '12 at 21:33
There's two options in Output in the Sound Settings dialog; one is which audio device to use, which will be internal audio or your Radeon card. At the bottom of the dialog, there is a choice of what output on that device you want to use. Does this not show your digital output? –  Jo-Erlend Schinstad Feb 13 '12 at 21:55
Here is a screenshot of what I'm talking about... i44.tinypic.com/11h9i82.png ... So basically, I have a normal digital realtek audio playback option, but it's not in my list of devices. –  Shane Feb 14 '12 at 1:09
