Hey all,

got it working on my Asus E200HA @ Xubuntu 19.10.
As already mentioned, the installed kernel (currently 5.3.0-24) already brings the driver.

What I had to do was uninstalling libasound2 (currently 1.1.9-1),
as the sound card is not supported in this version.

After uninstalling, I installed the latest alsa-lib [1] (1.2.1.2).
Note, that the default installation of the alsa-lib takes place in "/usr/lib",
but it should be placed in "/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/".
This can be done by running "./configure --libdir=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/".

After installing it, I downloaded the latest alsa-ucm-config [2] (1.2.1.2).
The content of the ucm2 folder must be stored in "/usr/share/alsa/ucm2/".

After a reboot, the sound works :)

So, installing the latest libasound2 (= alsa-lib) on the right place and
placing the UCM files in the right directory did the trick for me.
