I’ve got a sample laptop that I’m trying to get running on linux for an educational program. I’ve been able to get everything but the audio working (it has a touchscreen and can auto rotate). I’ve tried a few distributions including Ubuntu. I tried the Beta version with the hope that it would have the latest updates.
With a fresh install and updates it’s not showing an audio output in settings, and aplay -l has nothing.
I think I might need to file a bug report, but I wanted to check to see if there is a simple solution first. I’m not quite a Newbie, but my knowledge is spotty and I’ve still have a lot to learn. The post I found were for Tiger Lake hardware and were a few months old, so maybe I just need to configure some things. I’m willing to try things.
Here are a few outputs. (I also have the full alsa-info output, but wasn’t sure how to attach it.)
$ aplay -l
