I'm running Linux Mint 15 (Cinnamon) on a computer with a GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 motherboard. The only issue that I have had is the sound. The analog outs work fine, but I cannot get any sound from the optical out. I have tried several fixes that I have seen, including editing the alsa-base modprobe file. Here is the output from aplay -l:

**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 0: ALC889 Analog [ALC889 Analog]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 1: ALC889 Digital [ALC889 Digital]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

Anyone have any ideas?

Do you have alsa-tools installed? I ahd a similar issue and installing them solved it. Try:

sudo apt-get install alsa-tools

    You might want to expand this into slightly more information, this is really a comment rather than an answer. – EightBitTony Jan 18 '16 at 10:21
