Following a troubleshooting post I've found out that my driver is recognized in fact but is not listed at the sound settings and I think because of this my cinnamon sound applet will not appear. Altough my device does not appear in the Sound settings I get sounds (for example youtube and skype is working) but I can not increase/decrease the volume...
Any idea on how to fix this?
