I’m confused - so you have a Chromebook and wanted to get a more janky version of ChromeOS for it? Installing Linux | Chrultrabook Docs There’s some recommended Distros on there, and if you scroll down, there’s an audio script to get audio. Please check out the docs, it’ll save you time

Hi Josepablox,

Just to expand on what VaporTrail said. You (likely) won’t be able to get audio to work within ChromeOS flex or FydeOS or any other Chromium-based variant for a multitude of reasons.

The device you have is very old so getting anything to run nicely on it may be a challenge in general. Your best bet is going to be choosing one of the various (ideally recommended) Linux distributions found in the docs.

Thanks u guys gor ur replies, really apreciated. I give up with chromeOS flex and i installed Gallium OS to give a try. But i still have audio problems (the pc sounds but really really bad) i wanna know if that script can work with Gallium OS

Gallium is dead, use a mainstream distro from the recommendations in the docs

If you want something similar to Gallium OS, you can check out Fedora’s Xfce spin.
