View Full Version : [ubuntu] A7N8X Deluxe Sound Problem Fresh Install Sound is Muffled and all Bass

January 15th, 2010, 02:56 AM
Recently installed Ubuntu 9.1 following an easy how to. The install session went really well, smooth and only had one little speed bump when deciding which drive to install to (running raid and did not want to loose other partition). Like most speed bumps I got passed it. Ran all the updates then decided to start listening to music with Rythmbox Music Player. The sound coming out of my Klipsch Pro Media 4.1 was muffled and sounded like just the subwoofer was on. I checked all connections and they were fine. I tried looking for equalizer but did not find it and then noticed the sound was like a skipping record. So I looked it up and came across some posts that I could not figure out if they were for my problem. Seemed to me they were just leading me in circles.

One post said to download the nvidia drivers from the asus site. Another post said to download an update patch but the post was from 2008. I downloaded both. The file from Asus was a zip and includes 3 .rpm files. I looked up what to do with the rpm files and it said they have to be converted. Run around in circles again?

I also downloaded the nvsound-patch2.6.16-2.6.26.tar.gz. Now what am I supposed to do with this?

I thought going with linux was supposed to alleviate my pain of windows loop holes and solutions that dont really solve anything.

I also looked through http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1307019 and i could not find a solution.

Will upgrading to Ubuntu Studio help solve this issue?
