I just put Ubuntu 8.04 on my desktop (Dell Dimension E521). No sound will work. When I click on the volume in the top task bar I get an error message saying "No Volume Control GSStreamer Plugins and/or devices found". Under system-preferences-sound-test I get an error message "audiotestsrc wave=sine freq=512 ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! gconfaudiosink: Failed to connect: Connection refused". I read up on some problems with my sound card: Creative Labs SB X-Fi, and tried everything I could find, downloaded packages, switched to OSS, reinstalled the driver... nothing works, I'm quite frustrated... someone please help!!!
