Thus far, I have not been able to get this to work either. I have just installed Mint 14.1, previously also tried in Ubuntu 12.04. Neither version of Linux would allow for installing my Fatal1ty card drivers. The drivers load, the install begins, but I get the same message each time: "Product not detected on system!" (or something to that effect). I believe this may be a result of a deal with Microsoft to specifically produce this card for Windows only, as I am also unable to locate any Mac OS-X drivers for the product.
A few facts I have noticed over the last few months while attempting this:
1 - This is a rare issue. Not allot of resources can be found across the web referencing this card, or frequency of the issue.
2 - Either not many people purchase this card, or most users who do, use it with Windows.
The card works fantastically in Windows 7. High quality audio that is clean & crisp. This is not a cheap low end card like the Audigy. The card retails at $150. I paid $100 on Amazon.
For those of us using this product, there seems to be no Linux support. I have considered contacting Creative about the issue, but have been somewhat hesitant, as I had thought I could find something out there to resolve the issue.
So far, it looks like the only option is to hack the OS somehow, or replace the card itself. Neither prospect is very appealing.

AMD FX 8120 CPU
GSKILL 16GB DDR3 RAM
Asus Radeon HD 7770 1GB
Creative SB Recon3D Fatal1ty PCIe
I will let you know if I am able to find a resolution that is better than either of these. In the meantime, good luck, to both of us.
