System: i386, Ubuntu 10.04 LTS with Asus Xonar D1 PCI sound card.
alsa-base 1.0.22, alsa-utils 1.0.22 installed.

The rear card ports work fine but the front panel output is turned OFF in alsamixer. The front panel sound cable is connected to the card header, but I can't figure out how to enable this output. How can this be done?

I'd also like to be able to control some of the other card settings. Any suggestions?

Thanks.
