Reddit: Oh no :( my sound won't work :(

Monday 26th of December 2016 02:02:07 AM

So I installed Ubuntu Linux (16.04) for the first time on my brand new laptop hoping it would work great and I find out the sound doesn't work :(. I'm sorry to be a bother and all I'm new to Linux so I was hoping someone could give me a hand with this! My computer is the new Dell Xps 13 if that helps any and I installed Ubuntu from a live USB.
