Hello my fellow Ubuntu Mate enthusiasts!
First of all, I love Ubuntu Mate, and I run 18.04 on almost every machine myself and my family own very happily.
I've been trying out the 20.04 dailies too and am really looking forward to the LTS release.
I just wanted to flag that a lot of Chromebooks (and presumably other laptops with the same chipsets) that are now end of life have no sound OOTB, even on the latest 20.04 daily as of today.
It's actually an upstream bug:
Whilst you can use the git repo, it's hit and miss. It would be great to get this ironed out before the final release of 20.04 LTS as there are a lot of EOL Chromebooks that could be flashed with the MrChromebox EFI firmware and given a new lease of life with Ubuntu Mate (or indeed any other distros if the upstream bug is fixed).
For example, I have an Asus C200 here that was EOL on ChromeOS last summer, and has a chtmax98090 chip that has no sound OOTB, and would be happy to use it for testing.
Any thoughts @Wimpy?
