Re: Creative Recon3D + Sound Blaster Z (CA0132) Support
I added a Sound Blaster Z card (model SB1500), turned off the motherboard integrated audio, and *poof* no sound in Ubuntu. *Sigh* So there is no support for this card in Linux, right?
In Windows, which I dual-boot and use for gaming, when installing the Creative software for the card, my system returned an error. So in the BIOS I turned off the integrated audio on the motherboard, and then the Creative software installed just fine. Plugged my headset and speakers into the Z card, and voila, sound! Trippy kick-ass sound too: Watching Game of Thrones and a guy going through the woods at night, I was hearing the relative range, the distance of background sounds, hoots, and howls. It was an awesome audio experience.
But now in Linux, I'm head-scratching. I think I'll turn the integrated audio back on and see what happens.
