Were you able to install arch linux on the internal drive? I don’t know why mine didn’t show up during installation.

I installed ubuntu on a usb drive and the service works flawlessly. Can you send the chromebook-usbc.service content?

I install manjaro linux(full) to my USB(SD card with adapter).

chromebook-usbc.service content?
I just copied and pasted the content on the chrultrabook docs(post install section)
#Did you get sound to work?

I deal with the problem using mkinitcpio.conf and add both modules.
modules info

mkinitcpio.conf

i added the modules but no difference,I also did the modinfo command which have very similar results except for the signatures.I’m on manjaro but it still doesn’t work.

ths usbc fix systemd unit is no longer needed on a recent kernel

I switched to endeavour OS,less of a headache.

I tried ubuntu 24.04 and just the speaker didn’t work.

endeavour OS has fully functionality,only problem being that the eos repos don’t have as much packages as arco linux.
