    No Sound on Asus Eee PC Seashell 1005BX

    Hallo

    I recently tried to install LUbuntu 13.10 Saucy on an ASUS Seashell 1005BX Notebook PC. Everything went well except the Sound, I had no sound and after doing various checks it was apparent that no Pulse Audio could be installed. I then tried XUbuntu and it worked, XUbuntu identified the sound system Realtek and I can watch films with Sound.

    I would prefer LUbuntu as it is very fast on this computer, does anyone have a solution to the problem ?

    Thanks in advance

    You can add the Lubuntu desktop environment by
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop
    This will allow you to choose between desktops during boot.

    Please excuse my ignorance, during Boot will I land in a Menu-Option which allows me to select the Desktop or must I add an Option Sting to the boot command in Grub? That would be somewhat complex, so I would expect an Option-Menu - am I right ?

    Thanks for your prompt answer

    It will be a menu point close to when you enter user name and password. No changes in Grub.
