  • Open a terminal and install the following:
  • sudo apt-get install gnome-alsamixer
  • sudo apt-get install pavucontrol (may or not be needed)

The following are steps I took after still having no sound.

Go to the sound preferences in Mint and look at the hardware tab. select the byt-max98090 card and set the profile to Analog Stereo Output. Go to the input tab. Under choose a device for sound input select the byt-max98090 card. (This step may or may not be needed for sound output)

Headphones were working for me at this point.

(How to unmute using the alsamixer was not in the earlier post only the reference to the site below)

Unmute the speakers using the below process through the alsamixer: https://johnlewis.ie/procedure-to-get-s … asus-c300-

Procedure to get sound working in Fedora 22 on ASUS C300 Chromebook This will probably work with other distro’s/Baytrail Chromebook models.

Get to a terminal.

  • Type “alsamixer”.
  • Press the brightness down key AKA F6.
  • Find “Left Speaker Mixer Left DAC” and press “m” to unmute.
  • Find “Right Speaker Mixer Right DAC” and press “m” to unmute.
  • Update your distro to hopefully as new a kernel as possible (mine went to 4.1.4-200). This ensures that the sound card has the latest available firmware.
  • Reboot.
  • Enjoy shiny (and possibly slightly dodgy) sound.

Sound worked well on my Toshiba CB35-B3330 Chromebook 2 (Headphones and internal speakers) The only remaining issue for me is that the HDMI sound goes to the internal speakers.

remap your keyboard to use the chromebook keys for sound and screen brightness:

sudo apt-get install xbacklight (needed to add and control the brightness keys)
