I ran lspci | grep Audio and got:

00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03)

I've searched the forums and added the following line to alsa.conf

# macbook air sound
options snd-hda-intel model=mbp3

I rebooted and there was still no sound.

So I ran alsamixer. It shows that the speakers and master are not muted. The speakers and microphone are still not working. What can I do to get them to work? I'm running a single-boot Ubuntu 12.10 system with a 64-bit kernel, on a Macbook Air 1.1.

I also ran the command hwinfo and got the following results

'hwinfo --sound
