Not sure if you still have the Problem. But I've written a little "driver" which allows to adjust the Sidetone setting under linux (You can even set it louder than on windows!). https://github.com/Sapd/G930SideTone

"Device a170" shows that your distribution's lspci doesn't yet know the PCI ID of that device, so it's likely that the kernel driver does not know it either. Consider using a more modern distribution, or at least update the kernel.

I still cannot comment on how xmms2 handles the situation, but switching back to "Analog Output / No Amplifier" in gnome-control-center fixed the issue and there are no longer hard bumps in volume when switching to the next song. The volume controls of e.g. alsamixer also behave as expected.

I did the following process to resolve the missing audio under Ubuntu 14.04.3 64-bit on my Gigabyte GA-H710-HD3 motherboard (Skylake, Intel H170 chipset): sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev/alsa-daily sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install oem-audio-hda-daily-dkms (Note no specific Ubuntu variant in the package name) Once that was installed, ...

Try to disable the "automute" control that you see in Alsamixer: use right arrow arrow key to move to this control, then down arrow key to disable "automute": your speaker should now be independent from headphone jack, and only controlled by the "speaker" fader (mute it).

I think the problem has gone away now. At least it has not surfaced since last 5 restarts. It was solved by a combination of steps mentioned in the question and restarting at each step.

Since it seems to me that you have a dualboot setup this thread might have an answer to your problem. Right here: No sound from laptop speakers in Ubuntu 14.04 after booting into Windows 8.1

I am not answering your question as to how to solve the script issue; however I will venture an explanation as to why this is happening. The audio is a stream that is sent to the audio device, it is a one way communication; Awaiting no further response from the device, once the target is located and the stream is under way. As such, it is not easy to detect ...

I fixed it with the help of "pavucontrol". For some reasons Configuration->Internal Audio was set to "Dummy device". I changed the config back to "Analog Stereo Duplex". Now Loudspeaker and headphones are working again. This Link is really helpful: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting

Ideally, if your front panel supports jack detection it should work automatically like on a laptop, where audio gets routed to headphones when connected and to speakers when headphones are disconnected. You can control the setting manually in pavucontrol. The method described in the link through ...
