    how do I get sound on a chromebook?

    I would like to get sound on my chromebook's ubuntu side.

    Unfortuantly I am a newb and have no Idea how to do this or what programs I need.

    I also don't know how the chromebook part will effect the process.

    Hello ichyknee. Thank you for writing.

    I'm not familiar with Chromebook' s hardware, so please post the output of

    lspci |grep sound

    lspci |grep audio
    I'm not in front of a GNU / Linux system at the moment, so I cannot check the correct one. Otherwise, you could just type lspci and post its output.

    You might also want to verify these links:
    - lspci man page.
    - lshw man page.

    To add; Who installed Ubuntu on your Chromebook. You? This may help, or not. It depends if this was a Crouton Ub untu install on a arm chromebook or not. Need more details on what kind of chromebook you are talking about. There are all kinds of chromebooks out there.
