Ubuntu Multimedia :: Get Mic Working On Creative Labs SB X-Fi?

Jan 10, 2011

Just a quick how-to, to get mic working with Creative Labs SB X-Fi on Ubuntu 10.10 64bit. This is a result of my conversation with a 'friend' I met on #ubuntu on irc.freenode.net, To begin, this is the card we are talking about:

$lspci | grep audio
05:01.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB X-Fi
This card uses "snd-ctxfi" module for the audio output.

And this is how he got the mic to work using alsamixer. I have seen many thread/posts on the internet about this issue.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Creative Labs VF0400 Microphone Sounds Like Chipmunks

May 21, 2010

I just installed Lucid Lynx on a Thinkpad X60 last night in order to wring every last drop of utility out of it, and so my wife might have a notebook that she can use for Skype. I couldn't get the built-in microphone to pick anything up, but figured it didn't matter because I planned to use the one with the Creative Labs VF0400 camera. The problem is, using both Skype's test call, as well as the Sound Recorder program, the sampling rate may be out of whack because playback of anything recorded with the microphone sounds like the chipmunks (as in Alvin, Simon, Theodore) -- it sounds as though the playback has been sped up, though the Skype test call operator sounds just fine. If I can't get the microphone working, then that pretty much kills what I was going to use this computer for.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound Coming From Creative Labs XiFi Sound Card

Dec 20, 2010

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.

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Creative Labs X-Fi Titanium EMU20k2?

Apr 16, 2010

I have a new HP Z800 workstation that came with a Creative Lab X-Fi Titanium (EMU20k2) sound card install.

Hardware :: Creative Labs Sound Blaster 16 PCI Sound Card

Mar 20, 2009

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.

Ubuntu :: Creative X-Fi Front Panel Not Working?

Aug 22, 2011

I just installed a copy of Ubuntu 11.04 yesterday on a spare computer. I'm having trouble getting the front panel of my Creative X-Fi Fatal1ty to work. The sound card works just fine when I plug my headphones into the analog stereo output in the back. I'm not trying to do anything fancy with it right now like digital optical out or anything, just trying to get the one analog output on the front panel to work so I can plug my headphones in up front and leave the speakers plugged in the back.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Connect Creative Zen X-fi To Exaile

Jan 11, 2010

I installed ubuntu 9.10 last week and it is my ambition to completely switch to this platform at some point. However, I am experiencing some difficulties with the different music players at hand. I currently try to use exaile as my main player. But I can't make it connect to my mp3 player. My player is a Creative Zen X-fi 8GB. Can anyone guide me through the process of making exaile compatible with my zen? As far as I can read from different posts, it should be possible... Another question of mine is the following. Is it possible to edit the artist names in the music library. My problem is that exaile has one entry with the artist name Band of Horses and another with the artist name Band Of Horses. I would like to have these entries as only one entry, but I don't know how to edit the one or the other. Right-clicking doesn't lead to anything...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Installing Creative Xi-Fi Driver (64-bit)

Oct 14, 2010

I have a Creative Xi-Fi sound card. There is a driver installed currently, but unless my sound is at 100%, everything sounds distorted. My first inclination, as a Windows user, would be to update the driver. So, I downloaded the driver from their site in the form of a .tar.gz. I followed the guide here: [URL] But, as soon as I get to the step where I actually compile it (make), I get errors.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Getting Creative Zen Mozaic To Work In 10.10?

Oct 15, 2010

I have a creative zen mozaic that I'm trying to get working on ubuntu 10.10. I didn't get it to work on 10.04 but I didn't really try that hard. I conenct the player. It shows up as a disk and I copy over files but they wont be recognized by the player. It say's it's nothing there. If you open it in windows they will show and if you just remve them and copy them back in in windows the player will recognize them. How do I get this to work with ubuntu? This is the only reason to keep windows for me atm.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Bass In 10.10 With Creative SB Live

Dec 18, 2010

I'm new to Ubuntu, but have some experience with *NIX (specifically Red Hat and AIX.) I'm not getting any bass out of my 4.1 Logitech THX setup. The surround speakers are operating fine. I know that the bass unit itself is working because I was using it with windows on this computer before I made the switch to Ubuntu. If I run a speaker test from either the sound preferences or the terminal, the speakers work but the bass does not. I ran this command from a terminal to help with the diagnostic effort, but I'm not entirely sure what I'm looking at:

wget [URL] -O alsa-info.sh && bash alsa-info.sh
Here is the output of the above command: [URL]

I have been searching for an answer to this question for some time now and can't see to find the relevant information anywhere.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Creative Zen Freeze When Connected

May 1, 2011

I own a creative zen and have used it quite well with banshee over the last few years,

I recently upgraded to ubuntu netbook remix 10.10 with banshee 1.8.1 and everytime I connect the player to banshee the Zen freezes (and yes I mean EVERY time)

Thought it might be a Zen problem so ran recovery tool and reinstalled the latest firmware

tried getting Gnomad2 from older versions and tried to get it to work with no success

Read quite a few forums and tried the 1) Plug in Zen 2) Unmount 3) Open Banshee 4) Sync method however during the syncing stage it still freezes..

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Creative Zen 16GB - Transferring Album Art?

Jul 20, 2010

I've tried for some time now to get my Zen 16GB working properly with Ubuntu 10.04. I've tried Rhythmbox and this works for mp3s but album art is not transferring. I have latest 0.13 Rhythmbox and now at leat the mp3's go in directories under Music, but the .alb file is put a root and not ar is displayed.

I have tried gnomad2 and the latest (2.9.4?) crashes with 10.04 when reading the Zen. I can't drag and drop in nautilus and the it is connected as gphoto and the tags are not copied over. So, for all you Zen users.. how are you trandfering mp3's (with album art!) over to your Zen's?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Creative Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1 Soundcard?

Sep 2, 2010

I own an external usb soundcard: Creative Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1. After some tweaking around Multimedia Settings, (K)Ubuntu 9.10 successfully detected the card. I can now use it.

However, setting the sound level in KMixer does not work at all - KMixer now only contains a Microphone channel. Using hotkeys, I can still turn volume from 0 to 100%, but that has no effect on the volume produced by the soundcard. The sound card comes with a sound joggle, but turning it left or right has no effect whatsoever on the volume level.

Is there a way to solve either of these issues? p.s. Also, the card came with a Windows app and driver cd.
