So I've been trying out linux, and regardless of what I do, I end up getting no sound at all. I've tried researching the matter to no luck. At first I tried Debian, then moved onto Elementary OS, and now I'm at Kubuntu, figuring that Ubuntu had more of its software up-to-date, so it should be able to play sound on my system.
No such luck. Kubuntu clearly recognizes my built-in sound cards, but isn't outputting any kind of sound, whether I play from a browser or VLC.
If there's any other kind of information I have to provide, you may have to explain it to me, as I'm not familiar with the way Linux operates.
