View Full Version : [all variants] Newbie question: what to do if I have a driver problem?

January 20th, 2012, 03:42 PM
Hi, I am new to Ubuntu and Linux in general. I posted a question about a USB audio problem at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1910659

I haven't got a clear answer from that thread nor from my research, but it looks like I need a USB audio driver for my motherboard. If that is the case, where can I get that driver? Should I contact the manufacturer? Or should I contact some Linux driver developers?

Can a motherboard be called "not compatible" if the USB audio doesn't work but the rest of the features do?

Any info or orientation will be appreciated. I need to define the hardware that will go with Ubuntu or Lubuntu distro for a set of computers that will be assigned to an office of my company.

Thank you in advance.

If you are not restricted to the hardware you use then finding a usb audio device that is known to work with linux would be your simplest solution.
