    Surround Sound not working - ASUS M2NPV-

    I've recently tried Linux, and love it. I'm hoping to make the full switch from Windows but due to one niggly thing I can't just yet. I currently have a 4 speaker set up (subwoofer, left, right, centre). No sound will come out my centre speaker. I'm unable to find any sound settings within Ubuntu to play with, and I can't find Linux drivers for my Asus M2NPV-VM board with on board sound.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    resilius

    double click sound icon
    file>change device
    this will let you select available alsa or oss mixer
    edit>preferences
    will allow you to set switches for preferences

    Thanks - I've activated the centre speaker with Alsa, but there's still no sound coming from it. It still works fine in Windows.

    okay I think you will find the solution is hidden in one of the alsa config files. but before I can suggest anything, we need to know your onboard sound manufacturer.
    If you open terminal
    Application>Accessories>Terminal
    paste this code into it and post output

    Code:
    lspci -v

    I've typed that code in, and the output is as follows...
