new to ubuntu (17.10) and had nothing but problems since the install. After losing wifi right off the bat and spending 5 hours to figure out how to install missing drivers and turning off secure boot I came upon another problem of having no sound. Maybe my HP is just incompatible with this OS... It registers my sound card, I've reinstalled alsa and pulseaudio, when I check for sound it shows as it's registering but nothing comes out of the speaker. I've followed everything I could google and nothing is working. Help. I am tired of something that should be a simple fix becoming a massive headache. Is this what linux life is like?

Edit:

My speakers are just cheap plug in through headphone jack type

  • Maybe my HP is just incompatible with this OS but you didn't post the model or any other hardware specifications... Please edit and post that along with details about what you tried already. PS - My Linux live started years before Ubuntu and has been great, thank you. I hope we can make yours pleasant as well but you have to help us help you. – user692175 Nov 17 '17 at 1:17

    My HP 14-am052nr worked perfectly out-of-the-box with Ubuntu....but I tested it thoroughly with the LiveUSB before installing (that's what the Live environment is for). – user535733 Nov 17 '17 at 2:17
