View Full Version : [ubuntu] Absolute Beginner Issues w/ getting Tascam US-144 to play sound in Ubuntu

July 31st, 2008, 01:38 AM
Hi everyone! Thanks in advance for any help!

My stuff:

*Dell inspiron 6000 running ubuntu 8.04

*Tascam US-144 audio interface

My issues:

Wow, I don't know where to start! I read a few forum posts on different linux forums (can't remebmber which) and the sum of all the knowledge gained is that the driver for the us-122 does not work (very well?) with the us-144. I dual boot xp/ubuntu, so i have the drivers for windows, and i have the firmware updated to its latest version.

Does this patch for ALSA & the US-122L (what is ALSA?) work with the US-144? http://www.pps.jussieu.fr/~smimram/tascam/

Please keep in mind I AM AN ABSOLUTE NEW BEGINNER @ UBUNTU/LINUX! I only just figured out where to type these commands like sudo this or that! Please don't hate I'm trying to learn, but very not used to typing commands that I don't understand. STEP BY STEP, SIMPLE HELP IS MUCH APPRECIATED!!!
