Do you still have that asound.state file? I am facing this issue now but the link you gave is dated.

@ArchieMeng I could email you the asound.state file directly if you ping me (toranb at gmail). Also I did find that installing the latest Ubuntu seemed to solve the original sound issue I had some years ago so you might try that first :)
