I have a Dell PowerEdge 830 Dual Pentium on which I installed 10.04. I have installed (slotted in) an SB Audigy 2 ZS card, from another PC, but it doesn't appear to be working. The donor PC suffered a graphics card failure that killed the motherboard. I can't tell whether the sound card is actually faulty. Did the sound card ought to work without any 'fiddling'?
I use 64-bit Ubuntu Lucid. This machine has an onboard Nvidia sound chip (which can not be disabled in BIOS), I also have an Soundblaster Audigy 2 card, which i'd rather use.
Previously, this was impossible because Ubuntu could only configure the first card. However, with the event of 10.4 and the easy-to-use selector in Sound Preferences I was hopeful that it would work now. But no luck.
I should mention that this machine dual boots to Win XP, and the Audigy works like a charm there, so it must be a Ubuntu problem. The Audigy 2 card is detected by Ubuntu, and is selectable in Sound Preferences, playback is fine with no errors, the source appears in Sound Preferences, but no sound.
These are the steps I have tried, without success:
- Disable the on-board card in Sound Preferences - Cranking all the sliders to max in Alsamixer - Checking that there's no mute in Alsamixer, Sound Preferences, Volume Control - Adding lines to the bottom of /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base making the Audigy the default card (0), and the Nvidia secondary (1).

I have been using Ubuntu as my main OS on my desktops for a couple of years now. Started off with a HP with a Creative Labs XiFi soundcard, but am now using a Dell with a Creative Labs Audigy. Sound worked perfectly on the Dell since a clean install (about 7 months ago). I turned it on a week or so ago, and no sound! Even the little sound indicator in the notification area has gone.
I've been using Ubuntu 10.10 for a few months now (after about a 5 year hiatus from all things Linux) and when I first booted up, everything worked perfectly out of the box except audio. I have a Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 4 sound card, and after searching the forums I used [URL] to successfully get my audio working.
Now, I'd like to try Kubuntu. Like Ubuntu, when I use the live CD everything but audio works. However, I can't install gnome-alsamixer like I did to fix the sound under Ubuntu (of course, I may not have had all the repositories enabled, I didn't think of this until later). Also, KMix didn't seem to offer an option that worked.
my creative sound card isnt working with my ubuntuit's my 1st time to use ubuntui have a built in sound card but it's not workingwritten Ectiviai dont have an ectivia soung card i have Creative and Realtiki want the ubuntu to install the Creative

I've recently installed Linux Mint 8 64-bit on my computer and getting my sound card to work. I've been searching around the internet for solutions but I know next to nothing about computer audio.
My sound card is a PCI Express Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio. Came with my computer. Told it uses the SB Audigy chipset. Using the onboard audio is not an option. The card shows up in Sound Preferences under the Hardware tab, but I cannot get sound from it. Here's what they told me to do:
Install the karmic alsa backports through the Terminal Install hidden Level 5 updates to update the kernel Disable every audio device except the SB card (the others are onboard and HDMI) Check volume levels in alsamixer, PulseAudio Device Chooser and Volume Control I also tried to install the OpenAudio driver (not sure, will double check), which crashed Linux every time I try to activate it.
Does anybody know if it's possible to get the volume control knob (the one on the device) on the USB Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi device in Ubuntu 10.4? The sound is working great for me, but I actually bought it mostly for the volume so I'm hoping there's a way to fix it before I return it.
Before Fedora 14 i have Fedora 12 and all was ok with sound. Starting with root account surprize i have sound. But after playing a song in xmms, sound is dead. I have tested sound in Windows and is ok.
Sound does not work in my newly installed 10.04 (why I upgraded I will never know - I'm back to the same slowness problems with my ATI Radeon card as well). This time, however, I seemingly can't use my previous lazy approach of just switching on Digital support - it still won't work. Any suggestions - I'm really bad with Linux - and I have tried a couple of suggestions (I haven't recompiled alsa) - none of it will work.
Below is the output from an aplay -l command...
I gots to have my music - I might as well be using Windows if I have no music.
I'm running WinXP Pro on a Dell XPS 710 with a Creative X-Fi sound card. Been away from Linux for a year or so since I got this machine and would like to come back. Can you suggest/recommend a sound card (5.1 preferred) that has a high success rate with the Linux OS. I will probably install Open Suse or Kubuntu. I'm more than willing to dump the high end sound card for less flash.
I'm using openSUSE 11.4 x86_64. Today I came home from work and opened up Banshee... and to my surprise, nothing came out of the speakers. This morning everything worked just fine and my computer was left untouched since then. I found out that sounds works fine in Ubuntu and Windows 7, but in openSUSE... nothing. Well I tried deleting my sound card in YaST, and then reconfigured it. I used the Quick Automatic Setup option and then played a test sound. It worked so I opened Banshee again and picked a song to play... and still nothing.
Running speaker-test in Terminal returns no errors and no sound. In superuser terminal it returns "Playback open error: -111,Connection refused" and mplayer (in superuser terminal) returns "[AO_ALSA] Playback open error: Connection refused."
Are there some additional steps I should take to diagnose and/or troubleshoot the problem? I only know the problem is native to openSUSE, my speakers and sound card are both functional and sound works fine in Ubuntu 10.10 and Windows 7.
I just bought an Audigy SE sound card. It sounds fine for regular playback, but, for recording through Audacity, all I hear is this scratchy/distorted sound like it's turned all the way up. I tried lowering the volumes in alsamixer, but, that didn't work. Wanted to know if anyone had a solution before I send it back.
I managed to create a dual boot on separate drives Win7 and Linux UE 64bit and loading which ever OS I want to use with GRUB. Now everything is working dandy sofar in Linux except it seems that in sound properties, it's picking up my onboard sound & audigy4 card the latter being the one want to use. Could this be the reason why my audigy sound is not working. I have not plugged my speakers into the onboard sound to see if they work. So it seems as if linux is picking up both sound devices but not using either. Also linux sees my audigy 4 as a audigy2 card. I will tonight after work disable the onboard card in the bios to see if it works but if not, am I missing something here?
I am trying to record some vinyl using Audacity. I'm using Lucid 10.04 with a Soundblaster Audigy LS card. Regular sound playback works. Recording from the mic works. I just can't get anything to record from the line in. Everything is hooked up correctly. I can hear the music through the computer speakers. I booted into Windows and was able to record with Audacity just fine there. I can't get Audacity (or sound recorder) to show and record any input in Ubuntu. I've messed with every setting I can find in Audacity. I've also messed around with the settings in the GNOME ALSA mixer and sound properties. The most I can get to record is some static in the left channel.
Herein lies my problem: the black cable output is not working. I have a 50' extension cable from the black jack to my receiver for my speakers in the living room and also wired to my deck. The jack works in Windoze but not with Ubuntu. I'm wondering if it's a configuration issue that escapes me.
I have currently gotten my onboard sound working after some tousling and trial (Intel ICH5), but my beloved Audigy remains without breath. I've been around on the KDE forums thinking that it had to do with Phonon after it permanently forgot my sound cards (a feature which enables permanent sound removal too easily, in my opinion), and the admin pointed me toward my distro's forums.
Here's some info:
with some meaningful output, but, after a reboot, still no sound with speakers plugged into the Audigy.
2nd NOTE: I have just found this:
The driver in use is NOT the emu10k1 driver, which I believe should be the one according to the alsa soundcard matrix. How do I load the proper driver upon boot?
I am trying to get my soundcard, Creative X-Fi Titanium HD, on my new Debian Jessie Beta 2 installation working. I can hear sound from the speakers and sound is getting recorded from my mic, but the output is somewhat connected to the input. I had the issue on my Windows installation and had to turn it down in my soundcard settings. But after playing around in alsamixer and trying to switch inputs and turning down/up the volume on different channels, I had no success fixing the issue.
i have a creative sound card installed in my system. But it is not working. What I got is a mono sound output. I also check pulse audio volume control but only mono sound it displayed in the play back tab. i checked sound & volume control in system-> preferences -> hardware ->sound system-> preferences -> hardware ->volume control
But no avail it can only play analog front speaker, neither IEC958 centre nor left/right speakers.Actually in this,(F-10) there is no options to check a 5.1 surround sound(which is available in windows explicitly). Can anyone please help me to configure the sound card for a 5.1 surround system?
I have installed a Musix 2.0 distro which is based on Debian. My problem is that the sound card which is a Creative Sound Blaster is not either set correctly or does not have the right driver. It appears in the system as Audio PCI 128 and with the driver:
snd-ens1371.My mother board has over 1gb ram with a 900 mghz processor by AMD. No sound onboard, with an inserted sound card.
I install a copy from an iso of Fedora 14 on a old Dell Computer with some upgrades not prepriatary hardware. One of the hardware problems I am having is getting my Creative Soundblaster 5.1 Live card to work with Fedora 14. I have been looking for a driver and as of yet have not found one that works well. Do you have any suggestions regarding this so I can do some site development on this machine.
I have a serious problem with my sound card and Ubuntu 10.04. In the others distros (Gentoo, Sabayon, Fedora, Puppy...) the mic run very good, but in Ubuntu i can't record any sound. I can ear the sound exit from the speaker, but with sw like Sound Recorder, Audacity and Skype i can't record the sound. I tried EVERY setting in alsa mixer/Gnome alsa mixer but I can't resolve the problem.
Has anyone ever experienced an issue with a Creative Sound Blaster Live! Value Dell OEM sound card, models SB0200 and SB0203, using the EMU10K1X chip that causes any multimedia application (Amarok) or flash web site where the audio plays back way too fast?
I tried this on two different Dells, a Dimension 4600 and Dimension 8300. The only variable that was a constant was the Creative card. I took the OEM card out and put in another card, audio playback speed was fine. The only reason I am asking, even though the OEM card is slightly inferior, it has the front panel multimedia connector pins on the OEM card. Thus, if I use another card, either the front panel multimedia jacks become unusable or I have to turn on the integrated sound in the BIOS and run two sound cards.
