If pulseaudio isn't running then that's the main issue. It's hard to declare a bug is in a program when that program isn't even running yet.

Run 'pulseaudio -vv' and paste the output here. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Desktop Packages, which is subscribed to pulseaudio in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1760934 Title: Sound not working on HP x2 10-p030nl - Realtek rt5640 Status in pulseaudio package in Ubuntu: Incomplete Bug description: Audio doesn't work on every kernel I tried.
