    I have no audio at all. I sort of expected not to have use of the internal speakers (without some tweaking) but I expected to have sound output through the headphone jack.

    Any ideas on where I should go from here? I've googled a bit and haven't found a good answer.

    Are you dual booting between macOS and Ubuntu? If so, is the sound normal while running macOS?

    OK, that tells us the problem then is likely driver related. I haven't run Ubuntu on any of my machines for quite a while and am really not up to speed on the latest. Someone in our forums may be able to offer a suggestion but you will probably get better help from the Ubuntu community forums. Quite a few folks who hang out there dual boot between macOS and Ubuntu. Your machine is new but I don't believe Apple has changed much in the way of audio. Although sometimes Apple does things very subtly.

    I noticed that you have posted a different question on our Forums about Ubuntu matters - http://www.mac-forums.com/running-wi...buntu-mbp.html

    I'd be the last person to redirect someone from our Forums which I think are friendly and helpful, but your questions might be better addressed to:
