help with 5.1 on Ubuntu
Hi there! I've got ubuntu 7.10, a soundblaster audigy value 5.1 card and logitech 5.1 surround speakers. I get sound out of the front two speakers and subwoofer but nothing on the back. I'm sure its a configuration issue and I've been searching, but the problem is the instructions already assume you know where things like asoundrc are and how to configure them. I'm new to ubuntu (love it) and this is the only thing that is giving me headaches. I'd really appreciate some help if possible.
This should help you:
Matrix:Module-ca0106 - AlsaProject
If you already have alsa installed then copy this into your .asoundrc file:
To make an .asoundrc file use your favorite text editor. And then save it as .asoundrc
hope this helped
