[Daryna] Creative SB Live! 24-bit External

Postby akaineko on Fri Apr 04, 2008 11:03 am

Hi everyone!
Just installed Mint on my laptop - lovely distro indeed!
I have usb soundcard (Creative SB Live! 24-bit External) and a set of 5.1 speakers (also made by fine Creative Labs), this combo worked in windows (i could use my speakers to get 5.1 sound, mp3, dvd video, ac3 avis and so on), but now i get only 2.1 sound (at best! Amarok refuses to use external soundcard and uses only on-board one). So my main question would be - is it possible to make my 5.1 sound work again ? Exaile and VLC Player both use external, so i get 2.1 sound using them.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Control center > Hardware > Sound
has settings for which sound card to use
Works for me but not all sound is controlled here

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
