I'm new to Linux, been using it for less than a year. Loving it so much, accept of the fact that I have no sound on my laptop.
It seems to be a known bug concerning Intel sound card and Pulseaudio. Had it on previous version - Xubuntu 16.04, and tried to use the patch, but it's a bit too complex for me. Was kind of hoping that the new Xubuntu LTS version will fix this, but nothing happens.
As I've said - there is no sound whatsoever. The sound icon on the panel is gray, and when I open it - the mute box is checked, and I cannot UN-check it. Also, when I try to open PulseAudio Volume Control (from the Multimedia menu) it says Establishing connection to Pulseaudio. Please wait... - and nothing happens.
Here are my System Info
Host: neumatta Kernel: 4.15.0-20-generic x86_64 bits: 64 Desktop: Xfce 4.12.3 Distro: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Machine: Device: laptop System: ASUSTeK product: E200HA v: 1.0 serial: N/A Mobo: ASUSTeK model: E200HA v: 1.0 serial: N/A UEFI: American Megatrends v: E200HA.207 date: 02/01/2016 CPU: Quad core Intel Atom x5-Z8300 (-MCP-) speed/max: 480/1840 MHz Audio: Card Intel HDMI/DP LPE Audio driver: HdmiLpeAudio Sound: ALSA v: k4.15.0-20-generic
Any help is more than welcomed. But do have in mind I need step-by-step help :)
Thanks in advance!
