The sound settings are not contained in some handy-dandy little GUI
app. I think that's pretty much the final frontier for Lubuntu at this
point. Or at least one of them. That's probably good for the computer
labs since the kids won't be able to crank up the music too loud ☺ You
can get to the sound settings by using `alsamixer` in terminal.

If that doesn't fix it, give us the output of `lspci -vvnn` and we can
make sure the right kernel driver is being used and otherwise Google
for other problems people have had with that particular device ID.
