Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have Ubuntu 12.04 (64-bit) as my guest OS in VMware 6, running in Windows 7 Pro x64. I have no sound. When I click on 'Sound Settings', there are only 2 options: Analog Stereo Output and Analog Mono Output.

The driver that is installed at present (if I'm reading it right) is ES1371 [AudioPCI-97]. My motherboard is an ASRock Z77 Extreme6, and it uses digital (HD) audio.

What is the most common, or the most appropriate, digital stereo output driver that Ubuntu uses, and where can I download it?
