I just assemble an HTPC (Asus AT510NT-I Intel Atom D525 (1.8ghz dual core) BGA 559 Intel NM10 Mini ITX motherboard with 4g of DDR3 800 ram). The pc is running Xubuntu 12.04 with and I install the proprietary drivers.

The problem is that while the system have sound through HDMI and I can enjoy movies with Parole or VLC and listen to music, the sound is no where to be found when using XBMC Eden.

If I install XBMC with Ubuntu the sound is fine and if I sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop on the Ubuntu install the sound is there too.

The sound settings on the XBMC with Xubuntu-desktop are:

1- Audio output = Analog
2- ¨ ¨ = default

But these setting don´t work if I install just Xubuntu alone.

Most of the time solutions are easy. The difficult part is finding then.
