I have dual-booted my Chromebook with Xubuntu 14.04 and have found that the sound is broken. I have tried everyhting that has been mentioned on the internet. I have restarted pulse, uninstalled it, unmuted sound in alsamixer, fiddled around with pavucontrol, and nothing. If this helps, there is no sound notifier in my taskbar, and I can't find a way to add one. Is it just it's unmuted in the hardware but the OS is just muted and I can't find a way to unmute it? BTW I have a Samsung Series 3 chromebook.
UPDATE 1: I have gotten sound notifier in my taskbar now, and it's on full volume, but nothing comes out.
UPDATE 2: I have tried installing drivers but they fail to install.
UPDATE 3: In the volume control, when I play Youtube videos, it shows audio playing in volume control but no sound is coming out. No, my speakers are not fried as they work fine in ChromeOS.
UPDATE 4: I uninstalled Pulse, and works on bootup, but the sound is blasting. When I lower the volume, it mutes. How do I fix this?
