    Cool No Sound in Creative 5.1 SoundBlaster Speaker (only 2 front speakers works) plz help

    Hi i am new to ubuntu Linux. I have installed ubuntu8.04 in my 32 bit PC. I am having the following problem with my 5.1 speaker system. Appreciate your help in solving these problem.

    1. No sound in my 5.1 sound blaster speakers.
    Action performed:
    The PC had two ordinary stereo speakers while installing ubuntu in my machine. The sound in those 2 speakers were good. Recently i removed those ordinary speakers and added a new "5.1 speaker system" and a "Sound Card" to my PC. The details about speaker and sound card are as provided below...
    Speaker = Inspire M5300
    SoundCard = Sound Blaster® 5.1
    Problem:
    The 5.1 speaker system does not function properly, out of 5 speakers and a sub woofer only 2 Front Speakers and sub woofer is producing sound. there is no sound in remaining three speakers( 1 middle and 2 Rear speakers. )

    I noticed a strange behavior that even the front two speakers doesn't produce sound when i play different media files in different players. This gets solved when i change the audio playback setting to "ALSA output" or "Auto detect" setting under "Administration > Sound" menu. (currently i switch b/w "ALSA output" and "Auto detect" whenever i get no sound in front 2 speakers)




    PC Configuration:
    INTEL dual core processor,
    INTEL 945 Mother board,
    250 GB hard disk,
    CREATIVE SOUND BLASTER 5.1 SOUND CARD INSTALLED,
    Other Operating System Installed: WINDOWS XP Professional.

    Hi,
    Well i have a similar problem with my 6.1 Creative Inspire speakers. I tried a lot of things, but could not get the other speakers to work.
    I came across this link:

    Why are you running those commands as root? That can actually cause problems due to permissions. Use a terminal in user-mode for this next bit.
    Can you post the output of these terminal commands for me please:
    Code:
    uname -a
    aplay -l
    cat /proc/asound/version
    head -n 1 /proc/asound/card*/codec#*
    Terminal="Applications->Accessories->Terminal"
    Please also include the make/model of your PC/Laptop.
    Please post text output using code tags (the # in toolbar)
