Unfortuantly the front panel will not work in linux. Only the Analogue Out on the back of the card will work and the Digital Out with a bit of tinkering. I have an X-FI Xtreme Gamer and it has the same issue. Sorry for the bad news. Also, as a warning. Don't buy the PCI-e variants of the Soundblaster Family, they don't work that well if at all for the moment.
