I recently installed fedora 26 on a Kaby lake spectre x360. My builtin speakers work, when I plug my headphones, they are detected, but theres no sound. I have this problem with all linux distribution I installed on this laptop, but on windows, when i install the driver, it works.

usb headphones? look for drivers from the headphone makers, for linux.

What driver do you need to install, to make it work in windows? if it is a headphone jack, it should just plug and go.

It's the driver for the sound card of my laptop

linux may not switch automatically, to headphones. you might need to use system settings to select headphones as an audio option
