B560 Audio Compatibility on Ubuntu

I'm trying to set up Ubuntu on my new B560. So far sound is not working.


Ubuntu describes the sound card thus: "Audio device: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio (rev 05)" And Windows 7 uses drivers from Realtek.


Can anyone give a more detailed/specific name/description of the sound card? (that might help in deciding which driver setting to use)



Problem solved by upgrading to the latest version of Ubuntu .  The soundcard is a Realtek ALC269VB.
