New to Linux, Santa Cruz Surround Sound speakers only on 2 speaker mode
I am brand new to Linux. Put my first Linux system on yesterday! Anyway, I have a Turtle Beach Santa Cruz sound card and a 5 speaker surround sound system. On my Windows OS, I installed Turtle Beach's control panel. Through there, I put the speaker mode on "4 speaker w/sub" or whatever it's called. Then I get all speakers and surround sound.
Also, when I plug in my headphones on Windows, the Turtle Beach automatically recognizes that I put in headphones and it changes the speaker mode to "headphones". This means that whenever I plug in headphones, my speakers are turned off.
However, in Mandriva, I do not have the control panel. This means that whenever I play music, it is on the default 2 speaker mode. Also, when I plug in headphones, the speakers don't stop playing music. They continue playing. I would like to avoid having to turn off my speakers everytime I put my headphones in. I'd like it to automatically go through the headphones and turn the speakers off.
So, what are my options as to a replacement control panel for my sound card?
